Inter- and intra-individual variability of the loratadine (LOR) metabolism in Caucasian subjects was assessed during a bioequivalence study for two pharmaceutical formulations (solid oral dosage forms) containing 10 mg of the active substance. The analytical data were obtained by applying a reliable, low-cost and sensitive ion pair liquid chromatography/fluorescence (IPLC/FLD) method for determination of both loratadine and descarboethoxyloratadine (DCL) in human plasma samples. The sample preparation procedure is based on liquid-liquid extraction of the target analytes from alkalinized plasma using diethyl-ether. The separation of the analytes and 8-chloroazatadine as internal standard (IS) was achieved through an isocratic ion pair (IP) elution on a Purospher((R)) STAR RP-18 column. The mobile phase containing sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) as ion pairing agent was pumped at a flow rate of 1 mL/min. Fluorescence detection (FLD) was achieved at 280 nm (excitation) and 440 nm (emission) wavelengths. The increased sensitivity of the method is also based on a large sample injected volume (250 microL). Linear response was found over the 0.5-20 ng/mL concentration interval for both target compounds. Low limits of quantification (LLOQ) around 0.3 ng/mL were found for LOR and DCL. Method validation is presented.
