The thermal decomposition of a new antibiotic agent, cefuroxime lysine, was investigated by thermogravimetry analysis/derivative thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) methods in anoxic and oxidative environments. The influence of heating rates (including 5, 10, 15, and 20 °C/min) on the thermal behavior of cefuroxime lysine was revealed. By the methods of Kissinger and Flynn–Wall–Ozawa, the thermal kinetic parameters of activation energy and pre-exponential factor for the exothermic processes under non-isothermal conditions were calculated using the analysis of corresponding DSC curves.

A sensitive and accurate LC-MS/MS method was developed and validated for the simultaneous quantification of rivaroxaban (RIV) and sitagliptin (SIT) in rat plasma using apixaban as internal standard (IS). An Agilent Eclipse plus C18 column (2.1 × 100 mm, 3.5 µm, Agilent) was used for chromatographic separation with isocratic elution. Multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) using positive-ion ESI mode to monitor ion transitions of m/z 436.8→144.9 for RIV, m/z 407.7→173.8 for SIT, m/z 459.8→442.8 for IS. The procedure of method validation included selectivity, linearity, precision, accuracy, matrix effect, extraction recovery and stability were conducted according to the guidelines of EMA and FDA. The results indicated that no obvious drug-drug interactions occurred might be owing to their differences in metabolic pathways.
