Determination of drugs of abuse in blood is of great importance in clinical and forensic toxicology. This review describes procedures for detection of the following drugs of abuse and their metabolites in whole blood, plasma or serum: Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol, 11-hydroxy-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol, 11-nor-9-carboxy-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol, 11-nor-9-carboxy-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol glucuronide, heroin, 6-monoacetylmorphine, morphine, morphine-6-glucuronide, morphine-3-glucuronide, codeine… Expand
Economical Synthesis of 13C-Labeled Opiates, Cocaine Derivatives and Selected Urinary Metabolites by Derivatization of the Natural Products
TLDR
The synthetic work has focused on identifying 13C atom-efficient routes towards these derivatives, and the 13C-labeled opiates and cocaine derivatives were made from the corresponding natural products. Expand

TLDR
The LC-MS/MS method provides a simple, specific, and sensitive solution for the quantification of some of the most frequent drugs of abuse and their metabolites in whole blood and was successfully applied to 412 forensic cases from October 2008 to mid February 2009. Expand
Determination of cocaine, metabolites and a crack cocaine biomarker in whole blood by liquid-liquid extraction and UHPLC-MS/MS.
TLDR
The method was used to determine cocaine, benzoylecgonine, cocaethylene and AEME in 22 blood samples collected from victims of sudden, unexpected or violent death in Sao Paulo (Brazil) and showed that the method is precise, accurate, robust and sensitive for its purposes. Expand
Drug screening of whole blood by ultra-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry.
TLDR
An ultra-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS-MS) method for screening of drugs in whole blood has been developed and validated and recoveries from whole blood were > 50% except for morphine and THC. Expand
Paper spray and extraction spray mass spectrometry for the direct and simultaneous quantification of eight drugs of abuse in whole blood.
TLDR
Determination of eight drugs of abuse in blood has been performed using paper spray or extraction spray mass spectrometry in under 2 min with minimal sample preparation and exhibit the potential for performing rapid and high-throughput assays for selective on-site multicompound quantitative screening of illicit drugs. Expand
A one-step extraction procedure for the screening of cocaine, amphetamines and cannabinoids in postmortem blood samples.
TLDR
The developed gas chromatography-mass spectrometric method proved capable of quantifying all three classes of drugs of abuse proposed in this study, through a one-step extraction procedure. Expand
Simultaneous determination of cocaine/crack and its metabolites in oral fluid, urine and plasma by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry and its application in drug users.
TLDR
The methods were fully validated and proved to be suitable for analysis of 124 cocaine and/or crack cocaine users, showing the facility of accumulation in chronic users in matrices with a large detection window. Expand
A novel immunoassay for quantitative drug abuse screening in serum.
TLDR
An immunoassay was established which enables a reliable quantification of serological drug samples and a sensitive and selective detection was possible, even in the presence of up to 9 drugs or of various anti-drug antibodies. Expand
Micro-solid phase extraction coupled with high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry for the determination of stimulants, hallucinogens, ketamine and phencyclidine in oral fluids.
A confirmatory method for the determination of illicit drugs based on micro-solid phase extraction with modified tips, made of a functionalized fiberglass with apolar chains of octadecylsilane intoExpand

Concentration profiles of cocaine, pyrolytic methyl ecgonidine and thirteen metabolites in human blood and urine: determination by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
TLDR
Ecgonine, the major metabolite of methyl ecgonidine, was present in 77% of PM and 88% of the LV specimens, indicating smoking as the major route of cocaine administration, indicating detection of ecgonine is advantageous when benzoylecgonine concentrations are below 100 ng/mL. Expand
