Abstract: We report simple validated HPLC methods for the determination of thalidomide in the transport buffer for the human colonic cell line (Caco-2) cell monolayers. An aliquot of 50 μl of the mixture was injected onto a Spherex C18 column (150×4.6 mm; 5 μm) at a flow-rate of 0.5 ml/min of mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile-10 mM ammonium acetate buffer (24:76, v/v, pH 5.5), and thalidomide was detected by ultraviolet detector at a wavelength of 220 nm. Calibration curves for thalidomide were constructed at the concentration range of 0.025-1.0 and 1.0-50 μM in transport buffer. The validated methods were used to determine the transport of thalidomide by Caco-2 monolayers. The transport across the monolayers from the apical (A) to basolateral (B) side was similar to that from B to A side. The apparent permeability coefficient (Papp) values of thalidomide at 10-300 μM from the A to B and from B to A side was 2-6×10-5 cm/s, with a marked decrease in Papp values from A to B side at increased thalidomide concentration. The A to B transport appears to be dependent on temperature and sodium ion. Sodium azide, 2,4-dinitrophenol (both ATP inhibitors), 5-fluorouracil, cytidine and glutamic acid significantly inhibited the transport of thalidomide. These results indicate that the transport of thalidomide by Caco-2 monolayers was rapid, which might involve an energy-dependent mechanism. © Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
