Analysis of Zanamivir According to USP Method (NH2P-50 4E)


Zanamivir is a neuraminidase inhibitor and it is effective in the treatment of influenza caused by influenza A and B viruses. According to USP (United States Pharmacopeia) method, zanamivir should be analyzed using a column which can separate zanamivir and talo-zanamivir (internal standard) with resolution (Rs) of ≥ 1.5 and relative standard deviation (RSD) of ≤ 1.5%. It was confirmed that the all conditions were satisfied when zanamivir and talo-zanamivir were analyzed using Asahipak NH2P-50 4E.
