Title: A new validated RP-HPLC method for estimation of eflornithine hydrochloride in tablet dosage form
Category: Pharmaceutical Analysis
Section: Research Article
Country: India
View Article

A rapid, sensitive and specific RP-HPLC method involving UV detection was developed and validated for determination and quantification of Eflornithine hydrochloride in tablet dosage form.  Chromatography was carried out on a pre-packed Thermo Hypersil C18 (5µm, 250x4.6mm) column using filtered and degassed mixture of Acetonitrile:Buffer (900:100) as mobile phase at a flow rate of 0.8ml/min and effluent was monitored at 210nm. The buffer was prepared by dissolving 6.8gm of potassium dihydrogen orthophosphate in 100ml of water and the pH was adjusted to 5.0 by using O-phosphoric acid.  The method was validated in terms of linearity, precision, accuracy, and specificity, limit of quantification and limit of detection.  The assay was linear over the concentration range of 125mcg-750mcg/ml.  Accuracy of the method was determined through recovery studies by adding known quantities of standard drug to the pre analysed test solution and was found to be 100.30%-101.48% within precision RSD of 0.32 for Eflornithine hydrochloride.  The system suitability parameters such as theoritical plates, resolution and tailintg factor were found to be 9093.00, 1.4 and 1.08 respectively and the LOD and LOQ of Efflornithine hydrochloride were found within the limit(less than 2%).  The method does require only 10 minutes as run time for analysis which prove the adoptability of the method for the routine quality control of the drug.

The American heart association has identified the primary risk factor associated with atherosclerosis as evaluated levels of total cholesterol and triglyceride in the blood. Atherosclereosis, referred to as a “silent killer” is one of the leading causes of death in the developed countries and is on the rise in developing countries like India. Therefore therapists consider the treatment of hyperlipidemia to be one of the major approaches towards decelerating the atherogenic process. Allopathic hyperlipidemic drugs are available at large in the market but the side effects and contra- indications of these drugs have marred their popularity. Recently herbal hyperlipidemics have gained importance to fill the lacunae created by the allopathic drugs. The present study has been carried out to evaluate the antihyperlipidemic effect of plant Orthosiphon stamineus Benth against cholesterol diet induced hyperlipidemia in wister rats. Hydro-alcoholic extract of bark of Orthosiphon stamnineus Benth (HAEOSB) was studied for its in-vivo anti-hyperlipidemic potential using cholesterol diet induced hyperlipidemia model in rats. The result of study indicated that HAEOSB possess significant hypolipidemic activity at doses 500 and 750 mg/kg.
