Abstract

Purpose: To quantify the multi-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor, crizotinib, in human plasma and bulk powder by highly sensitive micellar enhanced spectrofluorimetric procedure.

Method: The developed procedure was based on measuring the fluorescence intensity of crizotinib (CRZ) in sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) micellar system at 404 nm after excitation at 271 nm. Validation of the developed procedure was carried out following ICH (International Council for Harmonization) guidelines.

Results: Maximum fluorescence intensity (FI) was attained by addition of 0.2 mL SDS and 0.2 mL HCl (1N) to CRZ aliquots and then dilution with distilled water. There was a linear relationship between the FI of CRZ and its concentration over the range, 5 – 400 ng/mL, with limit of detection and of quantification of 1.857 and 5.628 ng/mL respectively. The developed procedure was successfully applied to assay CRZ in pure powder form and spiked human plasma with mean recovery of 100.68 ± 0.37 and 99.98 ± 0.20 %, respectively.

Conclusion: The developed procedure is simple and sensitive, and can be applied to routine analysis of CRZ in pure powder form as well as in clinical laboratories for the determination of CRZ in plasma.
