A rapid, simple and sensitive reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method has been developed for the measurement of acyclovir concentrations in human plasma and its use in bioavailability studies is evaluated. Unchanged acyclovir has been quantified without the introduction of an internal standard using the present method. Human plasma proteins were selectively precipitated by the addition of 7% perchloric acid to spiked plasma samples or to the plasma samples obtained after acyclovir administration to human volunteers and the mixture was spun at 1000 g for 10 min. The supernatant was directly injected into a Novaflex C18 column and detected at 254 nm. The mobile phase consisted of octane sulfonic acid buffer (pH 2.5) and methanol (92:08). The limit of quantitation for acyclovir in plasma was 20 ng/ml, which enabled the determination of the area under the curve (AUC) more precisely, that is, it is much closer to its extrapolated value. The present method has been successfully applied to samples from bioavailability studies.
