Doxofylline is chemically designated as 7-(1, 3 dioxolone-2-yl methyl) theophylline. Presence of a dioxolane group in position C-7 differentiates it from theophylline. It is a new antibronchospastic drug recently introduced in therapy with pharmacological properties like theophylline; a potent adenosine receptor antagonist. doxofylline do not affect gastric acid secretion; either invivo or in-vitro; unlike theophylline. The lack of side effects with doxofylline indicates that the drug can be used safely and effectively. Some analytical methods for quantitative determination of doxofylline in pharmaceutical formulations like UV-Spectrophotometry, HPLC and LC-MS are reported. The present review deals with the various analytical methods reported as well as adopted for the estimation of doxofylline.
