|Abstract: ||A simple, specific, rapid and sensitive High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) method has been developed to measure plasma level of quinine and quinidine. The drugs were extracted successively from plasma at basic pH with chloroform and quantified on a revers-phase Z-module C18 HPLC column with fluorescence detector (excitation 340 nm, emission 425 nm). The isocratic mobile phase used was the mixture of 0.05 M ammonium formate and acetonitrile (93.5:6.5, v/v), adjusted pH to 2.0 with ortho-phosphoric acid. The limits of quantitation for these compounds were as low as 4 ng/ml of plasma, using a 0.25 ml specimen. Calibration curves were linear (R squared = 0.9994) in the range 0-7,000 ng/ml. An interassay reproducibility was 6.8%, 0.3% and 1.2% at the concentrations of 250 ng, 4,000 ng and 8,000 ng of quinine, respectively. Inter-assay coefficient of variation of quinidine was 1.8%, 2.7% and 3.7% at the concentrations of 250 ng, 1,500 ng and 3,000 ng, respectively. Recovery of quinine and quinidine were 76% and 81%, respectively. The method has been used in the analysis of quinine and quinidine in healthy volunteers receiving quinine or quinidine intravenously. The method is now being used to assay samples from field studies with satisfactory results.|
