Specimen handling and high-performance liquid chromatographic determination of furosemide

Journal of Chromatography
A L KerremansF W Gribnau


A simple high-performance liquid chromatographic method to measure furosemide in plasma and urine is described. Furosemide fluoresces best, but is unstable, at acidic pH and is subject to photochemical degradation. These factors were analysed and the results prompted changes in previously described methods. All specimens were very carefully protected from light; extraction and acidification were done with acetic acid instead of hydrochloric acid. With these precautions no 4-chloro-5-sulphamoylanthranilic acid was found in biological specimens. The main metabolite was furosemide glucuronide (20% of furosemide excretion). Sensitivity was 0.1 and 0.5 microgram/ml for plasma and urine, respectively. The applicability of our method for furosemide studies is demonstrated.

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.

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

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.
