Using high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry, we assessed trough imatinib plasma levels in 68 patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) who responded or not to standard-dose imatinib, after at least 12 months' treatment. Mean trough imatinib plasma levels were significantly higher in the group with complete cytogenetic response(More)
BACKGROUND Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors (TKIs) are a class of targeted drugs for the treatment of malignant pathologies. The metabolic profile of these drugs can result in great interindividual variability, thus therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) is of importance. Here, a rapid and specific method for quantification of nine TKIs in plasma samples is described.(More)
We studied the transplacental transfer of epirubicin, an anthracycline used for the treatment of different neoplastic disorders, in particular breast cancers, by in vitro perfusion of term human placenta. Placenta from women with uncomplicated pregnancy were collected immediately after vaginal delivery and put into 37 degrees C thermostated hood. Perfusion(More)
Imatinib, also known as Gleevec or Glivec, is a selective tyrosine kinase inhibitor currently used for the treatment of Philadelphia chromosome-positive chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and for other malignant pathologies. We have developed a LC-MS-MS [corrected] method that could be used for imatinib therapeutic drug monitoring in plasma. After a(More)
Highly sensitive ESI-LC-MS/MS methods were developed for urinary biological monitoring of occupational exposure to cyclophosphamide (CP), ifosfamide (IF), and methotrexate (MTX), which are hazardous antineoplastic drugs frequently handled by healthcare professionals. Extraction methods consisted of liquid/liquid extraction for simultaneous urinary CP and IF(More)
An isocratic high-performance liquid chromatographic method with column switching and direct injection has been developed to determine ciprofloxacin in plasma and Mueller-Hinton broth. An on-line dilution of the sample was performed with a loading mobile phase consisting of 173 mM phosphoric acid. The analyte was retained on a LiChrocart 4-4 precolumn(More)
BACKGROUND Several studies have suggested that proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs), mostly omeprazole, interact with clopidogrel efficacy by inhibiting the formation of its active metabolite via CYP2C19 inhibition. Whether this occurs with all PPIs is a matter of debate. As rabeprazole is a less potent CYP2C19 inhibitor than other PPIs, we studied the interaction(More)
An in vitro pharmacodynamic model using a disposable dialyser unit and computer-controlled devices was developed. Feedback control of peristaltic pump flow rates is used to maintain constant flow rates, thus avoiding the problem of the modification of the physical properties of the tubing that generally occurs. Fast equilibrium is obtained with capillaries,(More)
A direct injection high-performance liquid chromatographic method with column switching has been developed to determine moxifloxacin in Mueller-Hinton broth. A LiChrocart 4-4 pre-column filled with a LiChrospher 100 RP 18, 5 microm and a 150 x 4.6 mm I.D. column packed with a Supelcozil ABZ+ Plus were used and led to a retention time of 5.70 min.(More)
We have developed a new fully automated method for mycophenolic (MPA) acid quantification in plasma to optimize therapeutic drug monitoring of tranplant patients. This method involved solid-phase extraction on disposable extraction cartridges and reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography with diode array detection. Solid-phase extraction was(More)
