Abstract

A simple highly sensitive, rapid, precise, accurate and specific RP-HPLC method was developed for quantification of eflornithine hydrochloride (2-difluoromethyl-DL-ornithine; DFMO) in its commercial formulation. In this RP-HPLC method, the separation was performed using BDS Hypersil 5µ C18 (150 X 4.6 mm) column at room temperature by using methanol: 2% of Glacial acetic acid in water (80:20 v/v) as mobile phase. The flow rate was 0.8 mL min-1 with UV detection at 290 nm. The retention time of DFMO was 4.3. Linearity was observed over concentration range of 50-100 µg mL-1 for DFMO. The LOD and LOQ were found to be 0.008438 µg mL-1 and 0.028126 µg mL-1 respectively. The accuracy of the proposed method was determined by recovery studies and found to be 100.5 % for DFMO. The proposed method was validated for ICH guidelines like linearity, limit of detection, accuracy, precision, ruggedness, robustness, and system suitability.
