Ion quantification in liposomal drug products using high performance liquid chromatography

Publication date: Available online 22 November 2018Source: Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical AnalysisAuthor(s): Jiewei Wu, Rachael M. Crist, Scott E. McNeil, Jeffrey D. ClogstonAbstractA simple, straightforward analytical method based on liquid chromatography has been optimized to quantify total, internal, and external ions in drug-loaded liposomal products. The quantification of ammonium and sulfate ions in Doxil is detailed; although, the methodology has been extrapolated to quantitate a variety of ions, including calcium, acetate, and others in several different liposomal formulations. Total ion concentrations were measured after disruption of the liposome via lyophilization, to liberate all components. External ion concentrations were made following membrane centrifugation, without disruption of the liposome structure, where the permeate fraction was analyzed for external ion quantities. The internal ion fraction was derived from mass balance of the total and external ion measurements. High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), equipped with different separation columns, and coupled to a charged aerosol detector, was employed for all ion quantifications. The analytical measurements were confirmed using simple stoichiometry based on the drug crystallization of doxorubicin within the liposome interior. The method presented herein is quick, highly accurate, and has significantly improved lower limits of detection and quantification over other traditional methods. ...

Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: Journal of OrthopaedicsAuthor(s): B. Frehill, A.D. CrocombeAbstractThis paper investigates the need to use stems in conjunction with cementless metaphyseal sleeves in total knee replacement (TKR) to treat cavity type-3 defects. Finite element models of TKR with type-3 defects of two sizes were modelled with and without stems. The use of sleeves result in stress concentrations at the bone/sleeve interface. The use of stems shows a reduction in these stresses but also an increased risk of bone resorption in the proximal tibia. Based on this investigation the authors ...
