ABSTRACT: The present study depicts the assessment of class III antiarrhythmic drug dronedarone in its drug substance and drug product. Response surface randomized central composite quadratic design has been employed for the optimization of method parameters using reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) on Kromasil C18 250 × 4.6 mm, 5 µ with UV detection at 289 nm. The ranges of the independent variables used for the optimization were flow rate 0.9 to 1.1, column temperature 28 °C to 33 °C and composition of buffer in the mobile phase is 55 to 65%. The influence of these independent variables on the output responses: retention time, asymmetric factor, theoretical plates, plate height and capacity factor were evaluated. The five responses were simultaneous optimized by using central composite design. Optimum conditions chosen for the assay were flow rate of 0.945 ml/min, temperature 31.3 °C and buffer: Acetonitrile has taken in the ratio 61.93: 38.07 respectively. The retention time of dronedarone is 2.356 minutes with the employment of the optimum conditions given by the design experiments. All the system suitability parameters were satisfied. Further the method has been validated by the regulatory guidelines framed by the ICH. The method was found linear in the concentration range of 25-150 µg/mL with a regression coefficient of 0.999. The limit of detection and limit of quantification were found to be 0.58 µg/mL and 1.75 µg/mL respectively. The method was found to be simple, linear, accurate, precise and robust. Therefore, it can be used for routine quality control of dronedarone in its tablet dosage form.
RP-HPLC, Design of experiments, Central composite design, Dronedarone
INTRODUCTION: Dronedarone is a class III antiarrhythmic drug recently approved by the US FDA in 2009 for the treatment of nonpermanent atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter 1.
The chemical name is N- [2- butyl- 3[4- [3-(dibutylamino) propoxy] benzoyl]- 1-benzofuran-5-yl] methanesulfonamide hydrochloride according to IUPAC. Its molecular formulae are C31H44N2 O5S.HCl with molecular weight of 593.22 g/mol 2.
Chemically, it is a benzofuran derivative containing a heterocyclic compound which is a structural analog of Amidarone. DRO reduces the toxic effects in Amidarone by replacing the iodine group with a methane sulfonyl group 3. Due to reduced lipophilicity, it has lower toxicity and superior pharmacokinetic characteristics than the amidarone belonging to the same class III antiarrhythmic drug 4. DRO is crystalline in nature with a melting point of 149-153 °C 3, with white to a practically white, non-hygroscopic fine powder. It is a new active substance and there is no official pharmacopoeial procedure available 5.
Literature overviews confess that drug estimated by different analytical strategies like spectrophotometric 6, HPLC 7-16 and LC-MS 17, 18 in bulk drugs and formulation of Dronedarone. There are a few techniques available in the literature for the estimation of dronedarone. Quality is paramount in the pharmaceutical industry as people’s lives are directly dependent on the quality of medicine given to them for the treatment of diseases. As analytical development is a key part of pharmaceutical development and quality control, hence the incorporation of the quality by design to the analytical method development was introduced by regulatory bodies. QbD is an idea of quality recently introduced in the pharmaceutical industry and its usage has been the object of specific ICH guidelines 19, 20, 21, 22 (Q8 to Q10). As QbD is a systematic methodology of method development, one of the results of utilizing QbD ideas is a good understanding of parameters influencing analytical method performances related to the information.
QbD has been defined as “a systematic approach to development that begins with predefined objectives and emphasizes product and process understanding and process control, based on sound science and quality risk management” whose main goals are to improve method quality and increase operational flexibility 19. Hence, in this paper, an application of chemometric concepts to the development of an RP-HPLC method for an anti-arrhythmic drug substance and drug product as described. The proposed method was simple, sensitive, stability-indicating, accurate and more robust than the previously reported ones.
MATERIALS AND METHODS:
Chemicals and Reagents: Dronedarone reference standard was obtained from MSN Laboratories (Hyderabad). Acetonitrile, orthophosphoric acid, methanol, water were of HPLC grade and purchased from Rankem Chemicals.

The label claim of dronedarone is 400mg.
Screening of Columns and Mobile Phase: In RP-HPLC, with the employment of design experiments initially screened for columns, mobile phase, and wavelength. In this panorama, BDS 250, Discovery 250 and Kromosil 250 columns were screened. Latter selection of proper mobile phase has been done with various organic modifiers such as methanol, acetonitrile, orthophosphoric acid and potassium dihydrogen phosphate in various proportions. The entire region was scanned over the range of UV and the wavelength was selected at 289 nm with the help of a PDA detector. From these initial screening, the Kromasil® C18 HPLC column and the mobile phase consisting of OPA buffer and acetonitrile in the ratio of 60:40 respectively have been taken for further optimization studies.

Central composite design under the category of response surface methodology (RSM) has been employed to design a set of experimental runs by concerning the three independent variables i.e., flow rate, mobile phase ratio and temperature. Here, the ranges of the independent variables were entered along with their actual levels in Table 1. In the optimization experiments, with the help of central composite design, the effects of three study parameters were simultaneously evaluated to assess the effect on the 5 responses with the help of 20 experimental runs. The five responses which are dependent variables taken as were retention time, asymmetric factor, theoretical plates, plate height and capacity factor.

Preparation of Samples for Stability Studies: The stability studies have been performed to realize to what extent the drug is stable at the accelerated conditions. This was done with the assistance of ICH specifications. Dronedarone was subjected to stress under acidic, basic, oxidative, hydrolytic, thermolytic and photolytic conditions.
Oxidative Studies: To 1 ml of stock solution of dronedarone 1 ml of 10% hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) was added separately. The solutions were kept for 30 min at 60 °C. For the HPLC study, the resultant solution was diluted to obtain (100 ppm) solution and 10.00 µl were injected into the system and the chromatograms were recorded to assess the stability of the sample.
Solution for Acid Degradation Studies: To 1 ml of stock solution Dronedarone 1ml of 2N Hydrochloric acid was added and refluxed for 30 min at 60 °C. The resultant solution was diluted to obtain (100ppm) solution and 10.00 µl solutions were injected into the system and the chromatograms were recorded to assess the stability of the sample.
Solution for Alkali Degradation Studies: To 1 ml of stock solution dronedarone 1 ml of 2N sodium hydroxide was added and refluxed for 30 min at 60 °C. The resultant solution was diluted to obtain (100ppm) solution, and 10.00 µl were injected into the system and the chromatograms were recorded to assess the stability of the sample.
Dry Heat Degradation Studies: The standard drug solution was placed in an oven at 105 °C for 6 h to study dry heat degradation. For the HPLC study, the resultant solution was diluted to (100 ppm) solution and 10 µl were injected into the system and the chromatograms were recorded to assess the stability of the sample.
Photo Stability studies: The photochemical stability of the drug was also studied by exposing the (1000 ppm) solution to UV Light by keeping the beaker in UV Chamber for 7 days or 200 Watt-hours/m in photostability chamber. For the HPLC study, the resultant solution was diluted to obtain (20 ppm & 400 ppm) solutions and 10 µl were injected into the system and the chromatograms were recorded to assess the stability of the sample.
Neutral Degradation Studies: Stress testing under neutral conditions was studied by refluxing the drug in water for 6 h at a temperature of 60 ºC. For the HPLC study, the resultant solution was diluted to (100ppm) solution and 10 µl were injected into the system and the chromatograms were recorded to assess the stability of the sample.
Assessment of Validation Parameters: According to ICH guidelines, an analytical strategy was known to be validated in the event that it has been assessed through characteristics such as precision, accuracy, linearity, the limit of detection, the limit of quantification and robustness. The characteristics of analytical technique ought to be within prescribed limit and characterized standards to confirm its accuracy and authenticity 23.
Precision: It is the closeness of agreement between a series of measurements obtained from multiple testing of a homogenous sample under endorsed conditions. Precision includes repeatability and intra laboratory repeatability; both were performed for six replicates at a concentration of 100 µg/ml dronedarone.
Accuracy: The accuracy of the method was determined by computing the percentage recovery of dronedarone. By applying the standard addition technique for the drug recovery studies have been done at three distinct concentrations such as 50, 100, and 150% of label claim. At each level, ICH suggestion for performing accuracy was minimum triplicate at every concentration and results retrieved were compared.
Linearity: Linearity was established from 25 to 150% of working standard concentration using a minimum of six calibration levels (25, 50, 75, 100, 125 and 150%) having a range of 25 to 150 ppm of dronedarone. The calibration curve was plotted as the concentration of the reference standard of substance against peak area and the linearity of the method was evaluated by regression analysis.
LOD and LOQ: The limit of detection and limit of quantification of the method were accessed from the following formulae:
LOD = 3.3 × (σ/S)
LOQ = 10 × (σ/S)
Where σ = standard deviation of response and S = slope obtained from calibration curves of linear study.
Robustness: A few parameters like flow rate, mobile phase ration, and temperature were changed deliberately for the robustness evaluation using the HPLC method. One factor was changed at one time to estimate the effect. Each factor selected was changed at three levels (-1, 0, +1) with respect to the optimized parameters. The robustness of the method was done at the concentration level 100 ppm of dronedarone.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION:
Optimization of Central Composite Design (CCD): The optimization of analytical factors was carried out using design expert software. Twenty experimental runs were generated from the three factors and five responses by using the quadratic model under random response surface central composite quadratic design Table 3.

The above equations in terms of coded factors can be used to make predictions about the response for given levels of each factor. By default, the high level factors are coded as +1 and the low levels of the factors are coded as -1. The coded equation is useful for the identification of relative impact of the factors by comparing the factors coefficients. The obtained model from the design expert was validated by using ANOVA. The Derringer’s desirability shown in the Fig. 1 which was one.
The perturbation plots are constructed to evaluate the effect of the variables on retention time, asymmetric factor, theoretical plates, capacity factor, and plate height of dronedarone Fig. 2.

The optimized chromatographic conditions include flow rate 0.945 ml/min, column temperature 31.303 °C and a mixture of 0.1% OPA buffer and Acetonitrile in the ratio of 61.93: 38.07 as mobile phase, respectively. The system suitability parameters obtained are quite satisfactory for these optimum conditions and they are within the limit.

Validation of the Method: According to the ICH guidelines the optimized method has been validated. The calibration curve was found to be linear over the range of 25-150 μg/mL of dronedarone Table 6. As shown in Table 6, the regression analysis of the calibration curve of the drug was found to be 0.999. The detection limit and quantification limit for dronedarone were found to be 0.58 and 1.75 μg/mL respectively. The precision data representing both repeatability and intermediate precision are summarized in Table 6. The % RSD values for both repeatability and precision were less than 2% which indicates that the proposed method is precise. The results for validation and system suitability parameters are shown in Table 6. The results for robustness are presented in Table 7, which shows that change in conditions like flow rate, mobile phase ratio and column temperature did not significantly affect the recoveries, peak area and retention time of the drugs indicating that the proposed method was robust. The % RSD was calculated, which was found to be in the permissible limit.
The accuracy of the proposed method was evaluated by calculating the recovery studies of the test drug at three different concentration levels (50%, 100%, 150%) by the standard addition method. A known amount of dronedarone was added to prequalified sample solution and three replicates of each concentration were injected in developed chromatographic conditions. The mean percentage recovery of dronedarone was varied between and indicating that the developed method was found to be accurate. The % recovery results were shown in Table 8.
