Ibrutinib is used for the treatment of mantle cell lymphoma. Mantle cell lymphoma is a fast growing cancer which begins in the cells of immune system. A new HPLC method has been proposed for the quantification of Ibrutinib. Shimadzu Model HPLC system with Kromosil column (250mm x 4.6 mm, 5m particle size) was used for the study. Mixture of phosphate buffer and acetonitrile (45: 55, v/v) with 1.0 mL/min flow rate are the optimized chromatographic conditions and the system was monitored at 295 nm. Ibrutinib shows linearity 3.5–2100 µg/ml with regression equationy = 15528x + 251.16 (R2 = 0.9999). The LOD and LOQ were found to be 0.6927 µg/ml and 2.1578 µg/ml respectively. Stress studies were performed and the method was validated. Assay of marketed formulations was also conducted the system suitability parameters were within the acceptable limits.
