ABSTRACT A validated method based on liquid chromatography/positive ion electrospray-mass spectrometry (LC-ESI/MS) is described for the quantification of perindopril and its active metabolite, perindoprilat, in human plasma. The assay was based on 500-microL plasma samples, following solid-phase extraction using Oasis HLB cartridges. All analytes and the internal standard (trandolapril) were separated by hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography using a SeQuant Zic-HILIC analytical column (150.0 x 2.1 mm i.d., particle size 3.5 microm, 200 A) with isocratic elution. The mobile phase consisted of 10% 5.0 mM ammonium acetate water solution in a binary mixture of acetonitrile/methanol (60:40, v/v) and pumped at a flow rate of 0.10 mL min(-1). Quantitation of the analytes was performed with selected ion monitoring (SIM) in positive ionization mode using electrospray ionization interface. The assay was found to be linear in the concentration range of 5.0-500.0 ng mL(-1) for perindopril and perindoprilat. Intermediate precision were found less than 3.5% over the tested concentration ranges. A run time of less than 6.0 min for each sample made it possible to analyze a large number of human plasma samples per day. The method is the first reported application of HILIC in the analysis of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and can be used to quantify perindopril and perindoprilat in human plasma covering a variety of pharmacokinetic or bioequivalence studies.

    ABSTRACT: For sufficient antihypertension with less adverse effects, numerous clinical trials have recommended combination therapy using two or more hypertensive drugs. Chungsinoryungsan (CSORS) is a polyherbal complex based on oriental medicine, which has shown therapeutic potentials for antihypertension and additional renal improvement. Therefore, the affect of CSORS on the pharmacokinetic profiles of perindopril, an antihypertensive drug, was analyzed as a novel combination of hypertensive drugs. Rats received perindopril with CSORS as the combination or distilled water as the control. The co-administration of perindopril with CSORS or distilled water was performed by single dosing or repeated dosing for a week at a 2-h interval. The analyzed pharmacokinetic parameters included peak concentration (Cmax), time to reach the Cmax (Tmax), area under the plasma concentration-time curve, terminal half-life (t1/2) and mean residence time to infinity (MRTinf). In the single oral co-administration within 5 min, the pharmacokinetics of perindopril demonstrated an increased Tmax and MRTinf but reduced t1/2 in the combination compared to the control treatment, indicating drug-drug interactions between perindopril and CSORS. However, in the repeated co-administration for a week at a 2-h interval, which was more than perindopril MRTinf in the control treatment (1.5±0.1 h), the initial co-administration showed no differences in the pharmacokinetics between the combination and control treatments. Furthermore, the repeated co-administration also showed no differences between the combination and control treatment. The results indicate that CSORS can be co-administered at a 2-h interval that was more than perindopril MRTinf and further clinical studies may provide detailed information for developing a drug regimen that generates enhanced combination effects of CSORS with hypertensive drugs.

    ABSTRACT: A rapid hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography/positive ion electrospray mass spectrometric assay (HILIC/ESI-MS) was developed, validated and applied to the determination of deferasirox, in human plasma. The sample preparation process involved liquid-liquid extraction of 50 μL plasma sample using ethyl acetate as an extraction solvent. Chromatographic separation was performed on an XBridge-HILIC analytical column (150.0 mm × 2.1 mm i.d., particle size 3.5 μm, 135 Å) under isocratic elution. The mobile phase was composed of a 10% 8.0 mM ammonium acetate water solution pH=5.0, adjusted with formic acid, in a binary mixture of acetonitrile/methanol (50:50, v/v) and pumped at a flow rate of 0.20 mL/min. Quantitation of deferasirox was performed with selected ion monitoring (SIM) in positive ionization mode using electrospray ionization interface. The assay was found to be linear in the concentration range of 0.20-120.0 μg/mL for deferasirox. Intermediate precision was found less than 3.9% over the tested concentration ranges. A run time of less than 6.0 min for each sample made it possible to analyze a large number of human plasma samples per day. The method can be used to support a wide range of clinical studies concerning deferasirox monitoring and it was applied to the analysis of human plasma samples obtained from patients with β-thalassemia major.
