Simultaneous determination of five bioactive components of Gancao in rat plasma by UHPLC-MS/MS and its application to comparative pharmacokinetic study of incompatible herb pair Gansui-Gancao and Gansuibanxia Decoction

Publication date: 10 September 2018Source: Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis, Volume 159Author(s): Yue Cui, Ting Liu, Ye Zhang, Roujia Wang, Xiaozhou Liu, Qili Zhang, Peipei Yu, Yunli Zhao, Zhiguo YuAbstractIncompatible herb pair Gansui-Gancao is recorded in “eighteen incompatible” medicaments in many monographs of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) which means the two herbs can not be co-used in most cases. However, Gansuibanxia decoction composed of Gansui(Kansui), Banxia(Pinellia), Shaoyao(Peony) and Gancao(Liquorice) is a traditional Chinese formula which has been clinically employed for the treatment of cancerous ascites, pleural effusion, peritoneal effusion, etc. The purpose of the study was to investigate the pharmacokinetics of main bioactive components in Gancao to explore the reasons why Gansui-Gancao can be used in Gansuibanxia decoction. A simple, rapid and sensitive UHPLC-MS/MS method for simultaneous determination of liquiritigenin, isoliquiritigenin, liquiritin, glycyrrhetinic acid and glycyrrhizic acid of liquorice in rat plasma was developed and validated. After extraction from plasma, the analytes and internal standard were separated on a C18 column with the mobile phase consisting of 0.1% acetic acid containing 0.2 mM ammonium acetate in water and acetonitrile via gradient elution. The electrospary ionization source was adopted under the multiple reaction monitoring mode. The method was succesfully applied to a comparativ...

In the present study, we have assessed in vitro metabolic properties and in vivo pharmacokinetic parameters of a novel thiazolidinedione derivative, BIT-15-67, a potential anticancer compound. BIT-15-67 showed low solubility in aqueous buffers at different pH values. The permeability was determined across the Caco-2 m...

CONCLUSION: Abdominal pain in pancreatic cancer is the most common symptom that negatively affects the quality of life. A good analgesia improves the survival, while pain decreases the survival. The results of the present study demonstrated that the survival of the patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer who received effective pain therapy in the algology clinic may be longer.

Authors: Bertolini M, Dongari-Bagtzoglou A Abstract Candida albicans is an opportunistic pathogen colonizing the oropharyngeal, esophageal, and gastrointestinal mucosa in most healthy humans. In immunocompromised hosts, this fungal organism can cause mucosal candidiasis in these sites. C. albicans also causes fungemia, a serious consequence of cancer cytotoxic chemotherapy, which is thought to develop from fungal translocation through compromised mucosal barriers. Changes in endogenous bacterial population size or composition as well as changes in the host environment can transform fungal commensals into opportunis...

In this study, associations between preoperative nutritional status and incidence of early postoperative complications as a primary outcome in patients with oral and oropharyngeal cancer undergoing free flap reconstruction were analyzed. The investigators hypothesized that preoperative nutritional status may be linked with specific complications, allowing for better preoperative risk assessment.
