Abstract A selective and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatographic method for determination of intact glibenclamide in human plasma or urine has been developed. With glibornuride as internal standard, acid-buffered plasma or urine was extracted with benzene. The organic layer was evaporated and the residue was dissolved in equilibrated mobile phase (acetonitrile-phosphate buffer 0.01 M pH 3.5, 50:50). An aliquot of 20 microliters was chromatographed on a Spherisorb ODS reversed-phase column, and quantitation was achieved by monitoring the ultraviolet absorbance at 225 nm. The response was linear (0-1000 ng/ml) and the detection limit was 5-10 ng/ml in plasma or urine. The within-assay variation was less than or equal to 10\%. No interferences from metabolites or endogenous constituents could be noted. The utility of the method was demonstrated by analysing glibenclamide in samples from diabetic subjects on therapeutic doses of the drug.
