Determination of atorvastatin and metabolites in human plasma with solid-phase extraction followed by LC-tandem MS.


The aim of the present study was to develop a chromatographic method for the analysis of atorvastatin, o- and p-hydroxyatorvastatin (acid and lactone forms) in human plasma after administration of atorvastatin at the lowest registered dose (10 mg) in clinical studies. Sample preparation was performed by solid-phase extraction and was followed by separation… (More)
