LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHIC QUANTIFICATION OF TERNARY MIXTURE OF ANTI-VIRAL DRUGS AND APPLICATION TO ASSESSMENT OF THEIR TABLET DOSAGE FORM
Keywords:Column liquid chromatography, Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate, Lamivudine, Nevirapine
Objective: To establish a validated liquid chromatographic method for the quantification of Tenfovir disoproxil fumarate (TENO), Lamivudine (LAM) and Nevirapine (NEV) in ternary combination and in its tablet dosage form.
Methods: The three drugs were well resolved using ODS C18 column (250 x 4.6 mm, 5Î¼m) with a mobile phase consisting of phosphate buffer, pH 3.0-acetonitrile (60:40, v/v) with a flow rate of 1.0 mL/min at UV detection wavelength 252 nm. The developed method was validated as per ICH guidelines.
Results: The response was a linear function of analyte concentration over the concentration range of 45-105 Âµg/ml for tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, lamivudine and between 30-70 Âµg/ml for nevirapine with a correlation coefficient>0.9997. The % RSD values of precision and accuracy studies were found to be less than 2.
Conclusion: The proposed method was validated as per standard guidelines. The results obtained from assay values were in good agreement with the labeled amount of the marketed tablet dosage form RICOVIR-LN. The method holds promise for routine quality control of this ternary combination in bulk and pharmaceutical formulations.
