Pharmaceuticals, identified as emerging contaminants, are used in large quantities in human and veterinary medicine for treatment of different diseases. Among pharmaceuticals, antibiotics in the aquatic environment are of great concern as prolonged exposure to low doses may promote antibiotic...
Pharmaceuticals and personal-care products are widely used around the world to maintain human and animal health. There is a growing concern that these compounds pass through sewage-treatment plants and enter the environment. We present a brief review of input by different sources, trends in...
Given the concern for assessing environmental exposure due to the presence of pharmaceuticals and their potential impact, most studies carried out in this field have been on the development of analytical methods. Beta-blockers and anti-ulcer agents are pharmaceuticals with amine functionalities...
In the literature, many analytical methods have been described for the determination of illicit drugs in biological fluids. Urine is one of the preferred matrices for control of drugs of abuse because its analysis is considered non-invasive and the concentration of the compounds and their...
We review analytical methods published between January 2001 and January 2007 using either gas chromatography (GC) or high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) separations and mass spectrometric (MS) detection technologies for the analysis of bioactive pharmaceuticals and personal-care...
The ‘omics’ approaches – genomics, proteomics and metabolomics – are based on high-throughput, high-information-content analysis. Using these approaches, as opposed to targeting one or a few analytes, a holistic understanding of the composition of a sample can be obtained. These...
The focus of environmental analysis and determination of chemicals in the environment has recently been extended from the more classical pollutants to new contaminant categories including pharmaceuticals. This is attributed mainly to the development of new analytical techniques including liquid...
