Sensitive gas-liquid chromatographic method for the determination of oxiconazole in plasma

Journal of Chromatography
U TimmL Herzfeld


A specific and highly sensitive gas-liquid chromatographic method was developed for the determination of oxiconazole in rat, dog, and human plasma. The compound and its internal standard were extracted from plasma at basic pH with n-hexane-isoamyl alcohol (98:2, v/v), gas chromatographed on 3% SP-2250/Supelcoport (80-100 mesh) and quantified by means of an electron-capture detector. Oxiconazole was extracted almost quantitatively from plasma in the concentration range 10-5000 ng/ml. The sensitivity limit was about 1 ng/ml, using a 1-ml specimen. The method was applied to 13-week tolerance studies in dogs and rats in order to follow oxiconazole concentrations in plasma after oral administration of the compound. The assay was sensitive enough to measure precisely the small amounts of unchanged compound in plasma after intravaginal application of labelled oxiconazole to human volunteers.

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.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
