A fully automated liquid chromatographic method has been developed for the determination of the enantiomers of pirlindole, an antidepressant drug, in human plasma. The method is based on the use of a pre-column packed with restricted access material (RAM) (LiChrospher ADS RP-4) for sample clean-up coupled to a column containing a cellulose tris-(3,5-dimethylphenylcarbamate) based chiral stationary phase (Chiralcel OD-R) for the separation and quantitative analysis of pirlindole enantiomers. A 50-microl plasma volume was injected directly onto the pre-column using a mixture of phosphate buffer (pH 5.0) and methanol (97:3; v/v) as washing liquid. By rotation of a switching valve, the analytes were then eluted in the back-flush mode with the LC mobile phase. A complete separation of pirlindole enantiomers was obtained in 22 min on the Chiralcel OD-R column, using a mobile phase made of a mixture of phosphate buffer (pH 5.0) containing 50 mM sodium perchlorate and acetonitrile (65:35; v/v). The flow-rate was 0.6 ml/min and the analytes were detected fluorometrically using 295 and 340 nm as excitation and emission wavelengths, respectively. The method was then validated and was found to be linear in the 2.5-200 ng/ml range. The limit of detection was lower than 1 ng/ml. Repeatability and intermediate precision at a concentration of 50 ng/ml were about 1.5 and 3.5%, respectively. [less ▲]

A sensitive and automated method for the separation and individual determination of tramadol enantiomers in plasma has been developed using solid-phase extraction (SPE) on disposable extraction cartridges (DECs) in combination with chiral liquid chromatography (LC). The SPE operations were performed automatically by means of a sample processor equipped with a robotic arm (ASPEC system). The DEC filled with ethyl silica (50 mg) was first conditioned with methanol and phosphate buffer, pH 7.4. A 1.0-ml volume of plasma was then applied on the DEC. The washing step was performed with the same buffer. The analytes were eluted with 0.15 ml of methanol, and 0.35 ml of phosphate buffer, pH 6.0, containing sodium perchlorate (0.2 M) were added to the extract before injection into the LC system. The enantiomeric separation of tramadol was achieved using a Chiralcel OD-R column containing cellulose tris-(3,5-dimethylphenylcarbamate) as chiral stationary phase. The mobile phase was a mixture of phosphate buffer, pH 6.0, containing sodium perchlorate (0.2 M) and acetonitrile (75:25). The mobile-phase pH and the NaClO4 concentration were optimized with respect to enantiomeric resolution. The method developed was validated. Recoveries for both enantiomers of tramadol were about 100%. The method was found to be linear in the 2.5-150 ng/ml concentration range [r2=0.999 for (+)- and (-)-tramadol]. The repeatability and intermediate precision at a concentration of 50 ng/ml were 6.5 and 8.7% for (+)-tramadol and 6.1 and 7.6% for (-)-tramadol, respectively. [less ▲]

A fully automated method for the simultaneous determination of verapamil and its main metabolite norverapamil in human plasma is described. This method is based on on-line sample preparation using dialysis followed by clean-up and enrichment of the dialysate on a precolumn and subsequent HPLC analysis with fluorometric detection. All sample handling operations were performed automatically by a sample processor equipped with a robotic arm (ASTED system). The plasma samples were dialysed on a cellulose acetate membrane (cut-off: 15 kD) and the dialysate was purified and enriched on a short pre-column filled with cyanopropyl silica. Before starting dialysis, this trace enrichment column (TEC) was first conditioned with the HPLC mobile phase and then with pH 3.0 acetate buffer. 370 microliters of plasma sample spiked with the internal standard (gallopamil) were dialysed in the static-pulsed mode. The solution at the donor side was pH 3.0 acetate buffer containing Triton X-100 while the acceptor solution was made of the same acetate buffer. When dialysis was discontinued, the analytes were desorbed from the TEC by the HPLC mobile phase and transferred to the C18 analytical column by means of a switching valve. This mobile phase consisted of a mixture of acetonitrile, pH 3.0 acetate buffer and 2-aminoheptane. The influence of different parameters of the dialysis process on the recovery of verapamil and norverapamil has been studied. The effect of the volume, the aspirating and dispensing flow-rates of the dialysis solution has been investigated. The recoveries of verapamil and norverapamil in plasma were close to 75% and the limits of quantification were 5 ng/ml for both analytes. The method was found to be linear in the concentration range from 5 to 500 ng/ml (r2: 0.9996 for both analytes). The intra-day and inter-day reproducibilities at a concentration of 100 ng/ml were 2.3% and 5.6% for verapamil and 1.7% and 5.1% for norverapamil, respectively. [less ▲]

Monitoring the level of consciousness in brain injured patients with disorders of consciousness is crucial as it provides diagnostic and prognostic information. Behavioral assessment remains the gold standard for assessing consciousness but previous studies have shown a high rate of misdiagnosis. This study aimed to investigate the usefulness of electroencephalography (EEG) entropy measurements in differentiating unconscious (coma or vegetative) from minimally conscious patients. Left fronto-temporal EEG recordings (10-minute resting state epochs) were prospectively obtained in 56 patients and 16 age-matched healthy volunteers. Patients were assessed in the acute (≤1 month post-injury;n=29) or chronic (>1 month post-injury; n=27) stage. The etiology was traumatic in 23 patients. Automated online EEG entropy calculations (providing an arbitrary value ranging from 0 to 91) were compared with behavioral assessments (Coma Recovery Scale-Revised) and outcome. EEG entropy correlated with Coma Recovery Scale total scores (r=0.49). Mean EEG entropy values were higher in minimally conscious (73±19; mean and standard deviation) than in vegetative/unresponsive wakefulness syndrome patients (45±28). Receiver operating characteristic analysis revealed an entropy cut-off value of 52 differentiating acute unconscious from minimally conscious patients (sensitivity 89% and specificity 90%). In chronic patients, entropy measurements offered no reliable diagnostic information. EEG entropy measurements did not allow prediction of outcome. User-independent time-frequency balanced spectral EEG entropy measurements seem to constitute an interesting diagnostic – albeit not prognostic – tool for assessing neural network complexity in disorders of consciousness in the acute setting. Future studies are needed before using this tool in routine clinical practice, and these should seek to improve automated EEG quantification paradigms in order to reduce the remaining false negative and false positive findings.
