BACKGROUND If liquid-chromatography-multiple-reaction-monitoring mass spectrometry (LC-MRM/MS) could be used in the large-scale preclinical verification of putative biomarkers, it would obviate the need for the development of expensive immunoassays. In addition, the translation of novel biomarkers to clinical use would be accelerated if the assays used in(More)
RATIONALE Decreased fatty acid oxidation (FAO) with increased reliance on glucose are hallmarks of metabolic remodeling that occurs in pathological cardiac hypertrophy and is associated with decreased myocardial energetics and impaired cardiac function. To date, it has not been tested whether prevention of the metabolic switch that occurs during the(More)
Biomarkers that indicate the severity of hypoxic-ischemic brain injury and response to treatment and that predict neurodevelopmental outcomes are urgently needed to improve the care of affected neonates. We hypothesize that sequentially obtained plasma metabolomes will provide indicators of brain injury and repair, allowing for the prediction of(More)
Comprehensive two-dimensional (2D) separations, such as comprehensive 2D gas chromatography (GC×GC), liquid chromatography (LC×LC), and related instrumental techniques, provide very large and complex data sets. It is often up to the software to assist the analyst in transforming these complex data sets into useful information, and that is precisely where(More)
BACKGROUND High-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometric (LC-MS/MS)1 analysis of plasma free metanephrines is the most diagnostically sensitive and specific screening test for the diagnosis of pheochromocytoma. We sought to develop an in-house method for this expensive test METHODS We used off-line isopropanol protein precipitation of(More)
The investigation of naturally volatile and derivatized metabolites in mammalian tissues by comprehensive two-dimensional (2D) gas chromatography coupled with time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC × GC-TOFMS) can provide the data for a comprehensive analysis of the pathophysiology of disease processes. When relative quantification is needed for hypothesis(More)
Comprehensive two-dimensional (2D) gas chromatography coupled with time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC × GC-TOFMS) is a highly capable instrumental platform that produces complex and information-rich multi-dimensional chemical data. The data can be initially overwhelming, especially when many samples (of various sample classes) are analyzed with multiple(More)
The investigation of naturally volatile and derivatized metabolites in biological tissues by comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography coupled with time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC × GC-TOFMS) can provide highly complex and information-rich data for comprehensive metabolomics analysis. The addition of the second separation dimension with GC × GC(More)
There is an increased need to more fully assess and control the composition of kerosene-based rocket propulsion fuels such as RP-1. In particular, it is critical to make better quantitative connections among the following three attributes: fuel performance (thermal stability, sooting propensity, engine specific impulse, etc.), fuel properties (such as flash(More)
Comprehensive two-dimensional (2D) gas chromatography coupled with time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC × GC-TOFMS) is a versatile instrumental platform capable of collecting highly informative, yet highly complex, chemical data for a variety of samples. Fisher-ratio (F-ratio) analysis applied to the supervised comparison of sample classes algorithmically(More)
