____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Simultaneous Estimation Of Amoxicillin, Tinidazole And Omeprazole In
Microsphere Formulation By RP-HPLC
VIKAS KASNIA,*M. SENTHIL KUMAR, N. MAHADEVAN Nanomedicine Research Centre, Department of Pharmaceutics, Rajendra Institute of Technology and Sciences, Abstract
A simple isocratic reverse phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) method has been developed and
subsequently validated for estimation drugs (amoxicillin, tinidazole and omeprazole) in combined dosage form. The three
compounds were monitored at 230 nm using an isocratic mode on HPLC of Younglin prominence consist of SP930D
solvent delivery pump on inertsil ODS C18 column (250 × 4.6 mm, 5 µ) with flow rate of 1.0 ml/min and a mobile phase
consisting of methanol: acetonitrile: water in a ratio of 49: 49: 2 % v/v/v. The retention time for amoxicillin, tinidazole
and omeprazole was found to be 3.4 min., 5.0 min., and 5.7 min., respectively. Thus, the proposed method could be applied
for simultaneous estimation of amoxicillin, tinidazole and omeprazole in routine analysis.

Helicobacter pylori has identified as a human The current management of H. pylori pathogen causing active gastritis and peptic ulcer infections relies on antibiotic therapy, consisting of [1]. H. pylori are gram negative bacterium that can a combination with two different antibiotics infect the mucosal lining of the stomach and together with a proton-pump inhibitor with or duodenum. Spiral-shaped, gram negative bacterium without colloidal bismuth, which in most cases is H. pylori found in colonized gastric mucosa or successful in eradicating the bacteria [6]. adherent to the epithelial linings of the stomach [2]. H. pylori infects 25-50% of individuals in the bacteriolytic, β-lactam antibiotic used to treat developed countries and up to 70-90% of individuals in the developing countries [3]. microorganisms [2].

The presence of a benzyl

Triple combination therapy, using two antibacterial antibiotics and a proton pump inhibitor, achieved a high eradication rate. ____________________________________________________________ *Correspondence Dr. M.

Amoxicillin is susceptible to degradation by β-lactamase-producing bacteria, about 20 % is bound to plasma proteins in the circulation and plasma half-life of 1 to 1.5 hours has been reported [9, 10]. benzimidazole compound and a prototype anti- secretory agent [11] (Figure 2).

It acts by interacting with H+/K+ tinidazole is available in the market in the Tablet ATPase in the secretory membranes of the parietal A review of the literature revealed that several high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) methods have been reported for the individual determination of amoxicillin, tinidazole and omeprazole. However, no HPLC method has been developed for the simultaneous determination of amoxicillin, tinidazole and omeprazole. In this paper, we report an isocratic reversed-phase HPLC method to assay amoxicillin, tinidazole, and omeprazole using a C18 SPE extraction cartridge and UV detection at 230 nm.

The accuracy of the proposed method was checked by analyzing different concentration of the drugs in pure form within the calibration range in triplicate (n = 3). The precision of the developed method was based on standard deviation of the response and the calculated by determining the inter-day and intra- day coefficient of variation. The inter-day precision was calculated by analyzing samples for three consecutive days. The intra-day precision was Where σ = Standard deviation of the Y intercept of calculated by analyzing the three different concentration of the drug in triplicate and three times in day.
