Current approaches to discovery-stage drug metabolism studies (pharmacokinetics, microsomal stability, etc.) typically use triple-quadrupole-based approaches for quantitative analysis. This necessitates the optimization of parameters such as Q1 and Q3 m/z values, collision energy, and interface voltages. These studies detect only the specified compound and(More)
The SAR study of a series of 6-aryloxymethyl-8-aryl substituted quinolines is described. Optimization of the series led to the discovery of compound 26b, a highly potent (IC50=0.6 nM) and selective PDE4D inhibitor with a 75-fold selectivity over the A, B, and C subtypes and over 18,000-fold selectivity against other PDE family members. Rat pharmacokinetics(More)
An oral bioavailability issue encountered during the course of lead optimization in the renin program is described herein. The low F(po) of pyridone analogs was shown to be caused by a combination of poor passive permeability and gut efflux transport. Substitution of pyridone ring for a more lipophilic moiety (logD>1.7) had minimal effect on rMdr1a(More)
A rapid LC-MS/MS method was developed and partially validated for the quantitation of montelukast in spiked sheep plasma. A total run time of 1.5 min was achieved using a short monolithic column and employing a rapid gradient. Sample preparation involved protein precipitation with twofold acetonitrile by volume during which a deuterated internal standard(More)
Restricted access material (RAM) has been used in the packing of a solid-phase extraction (SPE) column for on-line extractions under turbulent flow conditions. The bio-compatible RAM material works by the principle of size exclusion in addition to conventional reversed-phase chromatography, thereby allowing the extraction and preconcentration of small(More)
Systematic, well-designed research provides the most effective approach to the solution of many problems facing highway administrators and engineers. Often, highway problems are of local interest and can best be studied by highway departments individually or in cooperation with their state universities and others. However, the accelerating growth of highway(More)
The specificity of interaction between the second PDZ domain of human protein tyrosine phosphatase1E (PDZ2) and a C-terminal peptide, ENEQVSAV, from the guanine nucleotide exchange factor RA-GEF-2 was investigated using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS). Specificity of the binding(More)
We describe an automated approach to analyzing whole plasma samples using online extraction without the need for an analytical column. A single restricted access material (RAM) column provided online extraction and pre-concentration of analytes while effectively removing proteins, salts and other biological materials found in the plasma sample matrix. The(More)
A discriminating dissolution method using a USP apparatus 2 dissolution tester was developed for a nitric oxide donating selective COX-2 inhibitor to support phase I and II formulation development, clinical supplies release and stability testing of an immediate release oral tablet. The BCS class II compound showed very low aqueous solubility and required(More)
Cefovecin sodium is a third-generation broad-spectrum cephalosporin antibiotic licensed for the treatment of skin infections in cats and dogs. The objective of our study was to assess whether its pharmacokinetic profile in squirrel monkey, rhesus macaques, and cynomolgus macaques was similar to that of dogs. Plasma levels were determined by using protein(More)
