RATIONALE Several mechanisms have been anticipated for the toxicity of amiodarone, such as oxidative stress, lipid peroxidation, phospholipidosis, free radical generation, etc. Amiodarone is structurally similar to benzbromarone, an uricosuric agent, which was withdrawn from European markets due to its idiosyncratic hepatotoxicity. A proposed reason behind(More)
Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) is considered today as a mainstay tool for the structure characterization of minor components like impurities (IMPs) and degradation products (DPs) in drug substances and products. A multi-step systematic strategy for the purpose involves high resolution mass and multi-stage mass studies on both the drug and(More)
In the present study, the metabolism of ritonavir was explored in the presence of rCYP3A4 using a well-established strategy involving liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) tools. A total of six metabolites were formed, of which two were new, not reported earlier as CYP3A4-mediated metabolites. During LC-MS studies, ritonavir was found to fragment(More)
Combination therapy with the use of fixed-dose combinations (FDCs) is evincing increasing interest of prescribers, manufacturers and even regulators, evidently due to the primary benefit of improved patient compliance. However, owing to potential of drug-drug interaction, FDCs require closer scrutiny with respect to their physical and chemical stability.(More)
Mass spectrometry tools (HRMS/LC-HRMS, MSn, and/or on-line H/D exchange) were employed to establish mass fragmentation pattern of torasemide and to characterize its degradation products. During collision-induced dissociation, multiple rearrangement processes and unusual losses of sulfur (S), sulfanyl (HS), sulfur dioxide (SO2), sulphinic acid radical(More)
RATIONALE Amiodarone is reported to cause hepato and pulmonary toxicity in humans, which has been envisaged to be due to formation of its reactive metabolites, essentially based on its structural similarity to benzbromarone, a drug withdrawn from the market due to reasons of similar hepatotoxicity. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to detect(More)
The present study was performed to detect trace level stable and reactive metabolites of nelfinavir in human liver microsomes and rCYP3A4. Initially, chromatographic and MS parameters were optimized and fragmentation pattern of the drug was delineated. The structures of metabolites were then elucidated by comparison of their MS/MS fragmentation patterns(More)
