    ABSTRACT: A highly sensitive, specific and enantioselective assay has been developed and validated for the estimation of TAK-700 enantiomers [(+)-TAK-700 and (-)-TAK-700] in rat plasma on LC-MS/MS-ESI in the positive-ion mode. Liquid-liquid extraction was used to extract (±)-TAK-700 enantiomers and IS (phenacetin) from rat plasma. TAK-700 enantiomers were separated using methanol and 5 mm ammonium acetate (80:20, v/v) at a flow rate of 0.7 mL/min on a Chiralcel OJ-RH column. The total run time was 7.0 min and the elution of (+)-TAK-700, (-)-TAK-700 and IS occurred at 3.71, 4.45 and 4.33 min, respectively. The MS/MS ion transitions monitored were m/z 308.2 → 95.0 for TAK-700 and m/z 180.2 → 110.1 for IS. The standard curves for TAK-700 enantiomers were linear (r(2)  > 0.998) in the concentration range 2.01-2015 ng/mL for each enantiomer. The inter- and intra-day precisions were in the ranges 3.74-7.61 and 2.06-8.71% and 3.59-9.00 and 2.32-11.0% for (+)-TAK-700 and (-)-TAK-700, respectively. Both the enantiomers were found to be stable in a battery of stability studies. This novel method was applied to the study of stereoselective oral pharmacokinetics of (+)-TAK-700 and it was unequivocally demonstrated that (+)-TAK-700 does not undergo chiral inversion to its antipode in vivo.

    ABSTRACT: A highly sensitive, rapid assay method has been developed and validated for the estimation of abiraterone (ART) in rat and human plasma with liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry and electrospray ionization in the positive-ion mode. The assay procedure involves extraction of ART and phenacetin (internal standard, IS) from rat and human plasma with a simple protein precipitation extraction process. Chromatographic separation was achieved using an isocratic mobile (10 mm ammonium acetate:acetonitrile, 10:90, v/v) at a flow-rate of 0.70 mL/min on an Atlantis dC(18) column maintained at 40 °C with a total run time of 3.5 min. The MS/MS ion transitions monitored were 350.3 → 156.0 for ART and 180.2 → 110.1 for IS. Method validation was performed as per FDA guidelines and the results met the acceptance criteria. The lower limit of quantitation achieved was 0.20 ng/mL and the linearity range extended from 0.20 to 201 ng/mL. The intra- and inter-day precisions were in the ranges 2.39-10.4 and 4.84-9.53% in rat plasma and 3.82-10.8 and 6.97-8.94% in human plasma.

    ABSTRACT: A general practice in bioanalysis is that, whatever the biological matrix the analyte is being quantified in, the validation is performed in the same matrix as per regulatory guidelines. In this paper, we are presenting the applicability of a validated LC-MS/MS method in rat plasma for JI-101, to estimate the concentrations of JI-101 in various tissues that were harvested in a rat tissue distribution study. A simple protein precipitation technique was used to extract JI-101 and internal standard from the tissue homogenates. The recovery of JI-101 in all the matrices was found to be >70%. Chromatographic separation was achieved using a binary gradient using mobile phase A (acetonitrile) and B (0.2% formic acid in water) at a flow rate of 0.30 mL/min on a Prodigy ODS column with a total run time of 4.0 min. The MS/MS ion transitions monitored were 466.1 → 265 for JI-101 and 180.1 → 110.1 for internal standard. The linearity range was 5.02-4017 ng/mL. The JI-101 levels were quantifiable in the various tissue samples harvested in this study. Therefore, the use of a previously validated JI-101 assay in plasma circumvented the tedious process of method development/validation in various tissue matrices.

    ABSTRACT: A highly sensitive and specific LC-MS/MS method has been developed for simultaneous quantification of ethionamide and ethionamide sulfoxide in human plasma (300 µL) using prothionamide as an internal standard (IS). Solid-phase extraction was used to extract ethionamide, ethionamide sulfoxide and IS from human plasma. The chromatographic separation of ethionamide, ethionamide sulfoxide and IS was achieved with a mobile phase consisting of 0.1% acetic acid : acetonitrile (20:80, v/v) at a flow rate of 0.50 mL/min on a Peerless Basic C(18) column. The total run time was 3.5 min and the elution of ethionamide, ethionamide sulfoxide and IS occurred at 2.50, 2.18 and 2.68 min, respectively. A linear response function was established for the range of concentrations 25.7-6120 ng/mL (r > 0.998) for ethionamide and 50.5-3030 ng/mL (r > 0.998) for ethionamide sulfoxide. The intra- and inter-day precision values for ethionamide and ethionamide sulfoxide met the acceptance as per FDA guidelines. Ethionamide and ethionamide sulfoxide were stable in battery of stability studies, viz. bench-top, autosampler and freeze-thaw cycles. The developed assay was applied to a pharmacokinetic study in humans.

    ABSTRACT: A highly sensitive and rapid assay method has been developed and validated for the estimation of S-(-)-raclopride (S-RCP) in rat plasma with liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry with electrospray ionization in the positive ion mode. The assay procedure involves a simple liquid-liquid extraction technique for extraction of S-RCP and phenacetin (internal standard, IS) from rat plasma. Chromatographic separation was achieved with 0.2% formic acid : acetonitrile (80:20, v/v) at a flow rate of 0.30 mL/min on a Phenomenex Prodigy C(18) column with a total run time of 4.5 min. The MS/MS ion transitions monitored were 347.2 → 112.1 for S-RCP and 180.1 → 110.1 for IS. Method validation and pre-clinical sample analysis were performed as per FDA guidelines and the results met the acceptance criteria. The lower limit of quantitation achieved was 0.05 ng/mL and the linearity range was extended from 0.05 to 152 ng/mL in rat plasma. The intra-day and inter-day precisions were 0.23-10.5 and 3.74-7.29%, respectively. This novel method was applied to a pharmacokinetic study of S-RCP in rats.
