Abstract

PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to conduct a forced degradation study on ifosfamide under several stress conditions to investigate the robustness of the developed HPLC method. It also aims to provide further insight into the stability of ifosfamide and its degradation profile using both HPLC and NMR. METHODS: Ifosfamide solutions (20mg/mL; n=15, 20mL) were stressed in triplicate by heating (70°C), under acidic (pH 1 & 4) and alkaline (pH 10 & 12) conditions. Samples were analysed periodically using HPLC and FT-NMR. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: Ifosfamide was most stable under weakly acidic conditions (pH 4). NMR results suggested that the mechanism of ifosfamide degradation involves the cleavage of the PN bond. For all stress conditions, HPLC was not able to detect ifosfamide degradation products that were detected by NMR. CONCLUSION: These results suggest that the developed HPLC method for ifosfamide did not detect the degradation products shown by NMR. It is possible that degradation products co-elute with ifosfamide, do not elute altogether or are not amenable to the detection method employed. Therefore, investigation of ifosfamide stability requires additional techniques that do not suffer from the aforementioned shortcomings.
