Simple and sensitive quantitation method for mevalonic acid in plasma using gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.


The combination of gas chromatography and mass spectrometry using a polar capillary column and isobutane chemical ionization made it possible to determine mevalonic acid (MVA) as the lactone at subnanogram levels using 1 mL of plasma. The pretreatment procedure consisted of only three steps, namely lactonization, washing with chloroform and liquid/liquid… (More)
