A sensitive and specific capillary gas chromatographic (GC) assay was developed for the quantitation of the quaternary ammonium steroidal neuromuscular blocking drugs pancuronium (PANC), vecuronium (VEC) and pipecuronium (PIP), as well as the metabolites 3-desacetylpancuronium (3-desPANC) and 3-desacetylvecuronium (3-des VEC) in plasma, bile and urine; the putative metabolite 3-desacetylpipecuronium (3-des PIP) was extracted and quantitated only in urine. The procedure employed a single… CONTINUE READING
