Sodium Stibogluconate Analysis Service

Sodium Stibogluconate Analysis Service

Delve Deep with Precision, Trust Our Sodium Stibogluconate (SSG) Analysis

SSG, a pentavalent antimony derivative with molecular formula C12H37Na3O27Sb2 produced by the reaction of antimony acid and gluconic acid, is often used for its effect against leishmaniasis. CD BioGlyco provides high-quality SSG analysis services with deep biological knowledge and cutting-edge Pharmaceutical and Biological Analysis technology. The services we provide include but are not limited to, the following.

  • Physical properties
    SSG is a white to light yellow amorphous powder, easily soluble in hot water and insoluble in ethanol or ether.
  • Identification
    The sample to be analyzed is well dissolved in water, followed by the addition of dilute hydrochloric acid to it to adjust the pH. After that, potassium iodide solution is added to it and the color change of the solution is observed. If the solution appears brown, then continue to add starch solution to it. After adding starch solution, if the solution changes from brown color to blue color, then this sample is proved to be SSG.
  • Chloride assay in SSG
    We dissolve the SSG well in water add tartaric acid and dilute nitric acid to it until the solution is clarified. Finally, we compare this solution with the standard sodium chloride solution against a black background. If the two solutions are in the same state, it means that the SSG contains chloride.
  • Sulfate assay in SSG
    A sample of SSG is dissolved in water and hydrochloric acid, after which an appropriate amount of barium chloride solution is added to it and compared with a standard potassium sulfate solution against a black background. If the two solutions are in the same state, the sample contains sulfate.
  • Lead salt assay in SSG
    Tartaric acid, sodium hydroxide, potassium cyanide, and sodium sulfide are added to a sample of sodium stibogluconate, and the color of the solution is observed and compared to a standard lead solution at CD BioGlyco.
  • Loss on drying
    A sample of SSG is dried under reduced pressure at elevated temperature to a constant weight and weighed before and after drying. The loss of weight of the standardized SSG should not exceed 15.0%.
  • Toxicological examination
    We dissolve by using lukewarm water, followed by letting it cool to room temperature. Finally, it is injected into mice from the tail vein. The toxicity of SSG is determined by the number of deaths in the mice.
  • Content determination
    After accurately weighing SSG, we add water, hydrochloric acid, potassium iodide solution, and starch indicator solution to it in turn. Next, we titrate the solution with SSG. After the blue color of the solution disappears, we calculate the amount of SSG based on the amount of sodium thiosulfate used.

Results: SSG injected into ascites as a protein tyrosine phosphatase inhibitor awakens immune cells and prepared them for immunotherapy. In this article, the authors used scRNA-seq to research whether and how SSG injected into pancreatic cancer ascites triggers an immune response. The research showed that SSG fusion for the treatment of ascites and pleural effusion induced interactions between immune cells, monocytes, and neutrophils, and massive gene expression, leading to upregulation of the immune response. The results also proved that SSG was not only used as a protein tyrosine phosphatase inhibitor but also acted as a protein tyrosine phosphatase inhibitor.
