To use fluoroquinolones effectively and safely, pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) analysis is strongly recommended. The plasma concentration of fluoroquinolones in the patients is necessary for PK/PD analysis. We established new HPLC system with a fluorescent detector enabling us to determine the concentration of 9 fluoroquinolones - ciprofloxacin, enoxacin, gatifloxacin, levofloxacin, lomefloxacin, moxifloxacin, norfloxacin, pazufloxacin, tosufloxacin - only by changing excitation and emission wave length. We suggest that this is useful for the determination of plasma concentrations of fluoroquinolones in patients and essential for PK/PD analysis.
