hans, and is secreted into the bloodstream. It plays and important role in regulating the metabolic activities of the body, particularly the homeostasis of the blood glucose. Insulin glargine is a recombinant human insulin analogue produced by DNA technology using a strain of Escherichia coli and the insulin glargine differ only by three amino acids from human insulin. Reversed-phase liquid chromatography (RP-LC) and size exclusion liquid chromatography (SE-LC) methods were developed and validated for the assessment of insulin glargine in biopharmaceutical formulations. A RP-LC method was carried out on a Jupiter C4 column (250 mm x 4.6 mm i.d.), maintained at 30 ºC. The mobile phase A consisted of 0.05 M sodium sulphate buffer, pH 2.5, and the mobile phase B was acetonitrile. The SE-LC method was carried out on a BioSep-SEC-S 2000 column (300 mm x 7.8 mm i.d.), maintained at 25 ºC. The mobile phase consisted of 0.03 M MES acid buffer, pH 2.5, run isocratically at a flow rate of 0.6 mL/min. Chromatographic separation was obtained with retention times of 7.5 min, and 9.9 min, and was linear over the concentration range of 0.05 - 200 μg/mL (R2 = 0.9998) and 0.02 - 180 μg/mL (R2 = 0.9999), respectively, for RP-LC and SE-LC, with photodiode array (PDA) detection at 214 nm and 200 nm for RP-LC and SE-LC methods, respectively. The limits of detection and quantitation were 0.018 and 0.054 μg/mL, respectively, for the RP-LC and 0.009 and 0.027 μg/mL, for the SE-LC. Specificity was established in degradation studies, which also showed that there was no interference of the excipients. Equally, the accuracy was 100.13% and 99.38%, with bias lower than 0.85% and than 0.86%. The validated methods were applied for the determination of insulin glargine and related proteins and high molecular mass, in biotechnology-derived products, giving lower mean differences of the estimated content/potencies of 0.21% and 0.16% for the RP-LC and SE-LC related, compared to the in vitro cell culture assay. It is concluded that represents a contribution to establish alternatives to monitor stability, quality control and thereby assure therapeutic efficacy of the biotechnology-derived medicine.
