Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are a new class of antidepressants used mainly for the treatment of depression and other forms of related disorders. There are a number of side effects associated with these drugs which include loss of weight, sexual dysfunction, nervousness and nausea. A fast and reliable detection method such as biosensing for the determination of the SSRIs metabolic profile is therefore essential for the appropriate dosing of these drugs. Biosensors for the determination of the SSRIs biotransformation were prepared with cytochrome P450 (2D6) isoenzyme and poly (anilinonapthalene sulfonic acid) film electrochemically deposited on gold.
