Determination of irinotecan and SN38 in human plasma by TurboFlow™ liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry.


Irinotecan is a cytotoxic agent used in the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer. Irinotecan is a prodrug when is converted in vivo to an active metabolite SN38, which has potent pharmacological activity. SN38 is then inactivated and excreted as SN38-glucuronide. High-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry is a widely used bioanalysis… (More)
