A simple and reliable HPLC method for determination of rat plasma levels of clinically used acetylcholinesterase (AChE) reactivators (HI-6 and obidoxime) is presented in our study. Separation was carried out by HPLC using an octadecyl silica stationary phase and a mobile phase consisting of 24% acetonitrile and containing 5 mM sodium octanesulfonate and 5 mM tetramethylammonium chloride (pH 2.3). Following intramuscular administration of equimolar doses of both oximes (22.23 mg/kg), the maximum of HI-6 concentration in rat plasma was reached in about 20 min giving 15.26 +/- 1.71 microg/mL. The distribution of obidoxime was fast; the single maximum 23.62 +/- 3.563 microg/mL was recorded at about 10 min. HPLC with UV detection presented in our study is a general method which could be applied for quick measurements of bisquaternary AChE reactivators in rat plasma.
