A new analytical method is described here for the quantitation of anti-inflammatory drug cyclosporin A (CyA) in monkey and rat plasma. The method used tetrahydrofuran (THF)-water mobile phases to elute the analyte and internal standard, cyclosporin C (CyC). The gradient mobile phase program successfully eluted CyA into a sharp peak and therefore improved(More)
Dried blood spots (DBSs) technology was evaluated in an assay for the quantitation of dextromethorphan (DM) and its metabolite, dextrorphan (DT), in human whole blood using high performance liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry method (LC-MS/MS). Both the parent drug and metabolite were spiked in the blood matrix and subsequently allowed to(More)
A hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatographic method with tandem mass spectrometry for the determination of atenolol, a beta-blocking agent, in human plasma has been developed and validated over the curve range of 10--2000 ng/mL. The assay was based on protein precipitation followed by evaporation of the extraction solvent, reconstitution with(More)
This article presents an analytical approach that used chemical derivatization to enhance mass spectrometric (MS) response in electrospray ionization (ESI) mode of 1-hydroxypyrene (1-OHP), a commonly used biomarker to monitor human exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). The enhancement successfully enabled the desired detection of 50 pg/mL in(More)
A sensitive and selective bioanalytical assay was developed and validated for the determination of enantiomeric molindone in human plasma using high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry along with supported liquid extraction procedures. The chiral separation was evaluated and optimized on macrocyclic antibiotic type chiral stationary(More)
S-phenylmercapturic acid is widely accepted as a specific biomarker for the evaluation of benzene exposure. Here, we describe a fast, specific and sensitive high-performance liquid achromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method that has been developed and validated for the determination of S-phenylmercapturic acid in human urine.(More)
