Nowadays scientists aim at developing generic and specific methods for drugs in combined pharmaceutical dosage forms. The main aim was to develop and carry out validation using precision and accuracy for Sofosbuvir and Ledipasvir by applying RP-HPLC method. The dosage form in fixed combination of Sofosbuvir-Ledipasvir helps in effective treatment of genotypes of chronic hepatitis C virus. This combination of Sofosbuvir-Ledipasvir was the first FDA approved direct acting antiviral to treat hepatitis C. Both the drugs were optimized using mobile phase as acetonitrile: 0.1% orthophosphoric acid (55:50v/v) with pH 3.0. The mobile phase was optimized at maximum wavelength of 283nm. The separation was achieved using C18 Cosmosil (4.6 x 250mm) column with a particle size of 5µ. The method was specific eluting retention times of 3.7 for Sofosbuvir and 6.0 for Ledipasvir. Intra and interday precision was carried and %RSD was found to be less than 2%. The results were found to be accurate with percentage recovery of 99.76% and 99.10% for Sofosbuvir and Ledipasvir respectively. Linearity was carried out in the concentration ranging from 40-200µg/mL and 9-45µg/mL for Sofosbuvir and Ledipasvir respectively. Both the drugs showed the regression coefficient of 0.999. Deliberate changes in flow rate, pH and wavelength were made and found that method was robust. The developed method was found to be accurate, simple, specific, robust and precise for the simultaneous estimation of Sofosbuvir and Ledipasvir in tablet dosage form.
