HPLC determination of benzthiazide in biologic material

Biopharmaceutics & Drug Disposition
M C MeyerK Rotenberg


An assay was developed for benzthiazide in plasma, urine and feces, using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). A reverse-phase column was employed, with quantitation af 280 nm, using polythiazide as an internal standard. In three of four human subjects who received a 50 mg benzthiazide tablet the plasma concentrations were below the 10 ng ml-1 sensitivity limit of the assay, and the urinary recovery averaged less than one per cent of the dose. One subject received a 50 mg dose as both a tablet and a solution; the urinary recoveries for these two doses were 1.7 and 10.4 per cent, respectively. Fecal samples, obtained from two subjects who received 50 mg tablets, were estimated to contain approximately 80 per cent of the administered dose.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.
