Meloxicam was quantified in human plasma after a single 15 mg oral dose of the drug was given to 26 healthy volunteers. An Applied Biosystems Sciex API 2000 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer in multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode, using TurboIonSpray (TIS) in the positive ion mode, was used. Protein precipitation with acetonitrile was followed by(More)
A sensitive method for the simultaneous determination of fluoxetine and its major active metabolite norfluoxetine in plasma was developed, using high-performance liquid chromatographic separation with tandem mass spectrometric detection. The samples were extracted from alkalised plasma with hexane-isoamyl alcohol (98:2, v/v) followed by back-extraction into(More)
A sensitive method for the simultaneous determination of loratadine and its major active metabolite descarboethoxyloratadine (DCL) in plasma was developed, using high-performance liquid chromatographic separation with tandem mass spectrometric detection. The samples were extracted from plasma with toluene followed by back-extraction into formic acid (2%)(More)
Following a single 10-mg oral dose of cetirizine dihydrochloride to 24 healthy volunteers, the analyte was quantified in human plasma. Protein precipitation using acetonitrile (ACN) was followed by reversed-phase liquid chromatography and tandem mass spectrometry. The MS/MS method was optimised using a PE Sciex API 2000 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer(More)
A sensitive method for the simultaneous determination of doxepin and its active metabolite desmethyldoxepin in plasma was established, using high-performance liquid chromatographic separation with tandem mass spectrometric detection. The samples were extracted with hexane-isoamyl alcohol, separated on a Phenomenex Luna C18 5 microm, 150x2.1 mm column with a(More)
After repeated topical application of a piroxicam gel preparation to the knee, piroxicam was quantified in plasma, subcutaneous tissue, synovial capsule and synovial fluid, using specimens obtained during knee surgery. Electrochemical detection was used and the limit of quantification (LOQ) was 0.72 ng/ml in plasma at a signal-to-noise ratio of 10:1. The(More)
A sensitive method for the determination of linsidomine in plasma was developed, using high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) separation with tandem mass spectrometric detection. Linsidomine was derivatised with propyl chloroformate and extracted with tert-butyl methyl ether/1,2-dichloroethane (55:45, v/v), back-extracted into HCl (0.01 M) followed(More)
A rapid LC-MS/MS method for confirmatory testing of five major categories of drugs of abuse (amphetamine-type substances, opiates, cocaine, cannabis metabolites and benzodiazepines) in urine has been developed. All drugs of abuse mandated by the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4308:2008 are quantified in a single chromatographic run. Urine samples(More)
An LC-MS/MS method for the quantitation of urinary metabolites of eight JWH-type synthetic cannabinoids (SCs) has been developed and validated. Urine samples are subjected to deconjugation using β-glucuronidase, followed by a solvent extraction procedure. Compounds are separated on a reverse-phase HPLC column within a 14 min cycle. Low assay limits are(More)
A sensitive method for the determination of clarithromycin in plasma is described, using high-performance liquid chromatographic separation with tandem mass spectrometric detection. Samples were prepared using liquid-liquid extraction and separated on a Supelco Discovery C18 column with a mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile, methanol and acetic acid.(More)
