ABSTRACT: To develop a RP-HPLC method for the determination of the concentration of hydroxysafflor yellow A in rat plasma, to study the pharmacokinetics of Carthamus tinctorius extration and Naodesheng tablet, and to investigate the effect of other components on the pharmacokinetics of hydroxysafflor yellow A. The rats were orally treated with Carthamus tinctorius extration and Naodesheng capsule respectively. Blood samples were collected in heparinized eppendorf tube via the oculi chorioideae vein. Plasma was separated by centrifugation at 10 000 r x min(-1) for 10 min, and two-times methanol in volume was added to deposit proteins. After centrifugation, the upper liquid was transferred to filter. The concentration of hydroxysafflor yellow A in serum was determined by RP-HPLC. The stationary phase was C18, and methanol-acetonitrile-0.7% orthophosphoric acid (26: 2:72) was taken as the mobile phase, A UV detector was used at 403 nm. The pharmacokinetic parameters were calculated with 3p97 program. A good linear relationship of hydroxysafflor yellow A was obtained in the range of 0.03 and 2.56 mg x L(-1), the lowest limit of determination was 10 microg x L(-1), and the lowest limit of quantitation was 30 microg x L(-1). The mean recoveries were (99.3 +/- 1.4)%, (92.8 +/- 1.8)%, (98.4 +/- 2.0)% for high, middle, low concentrations of the samples respectively. The plasma concentration-time curves of hydroxysafflor yellow A were fitted with two-compartments model. The AUC)0-t), AUC(0-infinity), C(max) and T(max) of hydroxysafflor yellow A were increased in the Naodesheng group, compared with 50 mg x kg(-1) C. tinctorius extract group. The HPLC method was selective, accurate and sensitive. The results indicated that the other herbs improved the absorption of hydroxysafflor yellow A and increased the bioavailability of hydroxysafflor yellow A significantly.Zhongguo Zhong yao za zhi = Zhongguo zhongyao zazhi = China journal of Chinese materia medica 08/2011; 36(16):2246-9.

ABSTRACT: To develop a GC method for simultaneous determination of 4 compounds (atractylone, hinesol, beta-eudesmol and atractylodin) in Atractylodes lancea. A HP-1 capillary column (0.25 mm x 30 m, 0.25 microm) was used. The detector was FID:Inlet temperature was 250 degrees C. The detector temperature was 250 degrees C. The column temperature was set at 145 degrees C and held for 25 min after injection, then programmed at 10 degrees C x min(-1) to 250 degrees C and held for 10 min at the temperature. The carrying gas was nitrogen, split ratio was 40:1. Injection volume was 2 microL, Cluster analysis was performed by SPSS13.0 software. The linear ranges for atractylone, hinesol, beta-eudesmol and atractylodin were 0.0122. 32 (r = .9998), 0.008-1.68 (r = 0.9998), 0.009-1.76 (r = 0.9999), 0.016-3.20 g x L(-1) (r = 0.9997), respectively. The average recoveries (n = 3) of atractylone, hinesol, beta-eudesmol and atractylodin were 98.0%-99.0%, 97.7%-99.4%, 98.4%-99.2%, 97.8%-99.7%, respectively. The samples analyzed were divided into two classes. This method is simple, specific, repeatable and stable. It can be applied for the simultaneous determination of 4 compounds (atractylone, hinesol, beta-eudesmol and atractylodin) in A. lancea, which will provide the basis for the quality control of A. lancea. The contents of 4 active compounds were significantly different between geo-authentic and non-authentic producing areas.Zhongguo Zhong yao za zhi = Zhongguo zhongyao zazhi = China journal of Chinese materia medica 03/2010; 35(6):725-8.
