Two different spectrofluorimetric methods for simultaneous determination of gemfibrozil and rosiglitazone in human plasma.
Summary of "Two different spectrofluorimetric methods for simultaneous determination of gemfibrozil and rosiglitazone in human plasma."
Two accurate, reliable, and highly sensitive spectrofluorimetric methods were developed for simultaneous determination of binary mixture gemfibrozil and rosiglitazone in human plasma without prior separation steps. The first method is based on synchronous fluorescence spectrometry using double scans. At Δλ=27nm, gemfibrozil yields detectable signal that is independent of the presence of rosiglitazone. Similarly, at Δλ=120nm the signal of rosiglitazone is not influenced by the presence of gemfibrozil. Signals at two wavelengths, 301 (Δλ=27nm) and 368nm (Δλ=120nm) vary linearly with gemfibrozil and rosiglitazone concentrations over the range 100-700ngmL(-1) (for gemfibrozil) and 20-140ngmL(-1) (for rosiglitazone), respectively. The limits of detection (LOD) were 2.3 and 2.72ngmL(-1) for gemfibrozil and rosiglitazone, respectively. The second method is based on the technique of simultaneous equations (Vierodt's method), in which 258nm was selected as the excitation wavelength. Two equations are constructed based on the fact that at ( [Formula: see text] of gemfibrozil) and ( [Formula: see text] of rosiglitazone) the fluorescence of the mixture is the sum of the individual fluorescence of gemfibrozil and rosiglitazone. The limits of detection (LOD) were 28.1 and 23.63ngmL(-1) for gemfibrozil and rosiglitazone, respectively. The proposed methods were successfully applied for the determination of the two compounds in synthetic mixtures and in human plasma with a good recovery.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The simultaneous, or near simultaneous, transference of heart and lungs from one human or animal to another.
A lipid-regulating agent that lowers elevated serum lipids primarily by decreasing serum triglycerides with a variable reduction in total cholesterol. These decreases occur primarily in the VLDL fraction and less frequently in the LDL fraction. Gemfibrozil increases HDL subfractions HDL2 and HDL3 as well as apolipoproteins A-I and A-II. Its mechanism of action has not been definitely established.
