Abstract

The potential of on-line dialysis as a sample preparation procedure for compounds highly bound to plasma proteins is evaluated, using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs as model compounds and column liquid chromatography as the separation technique. Different strategies to reduce the degree of drug-protein binding and so increase the analyte recovery are systematically explored and discussed: alteration of the conformation of the binding protein by changing the pH of the sample or by adding an organic solvent, addition of several displacing compounds and combinations of such approaches. A fully automated method is presented for the determination of ketoprofen, ibuprofen, flurbiprofen, fenoprofen and naproxen in human plasma, in which the absolute analyte recoveries are increased from 0-1% (untreated samples) to 40-65%. Relevant analytical data are given to demonstrate the reliability of the proposed procedure. © 1995.
