Simultaneous determination of ginsenoside (G-Re, G-Rg1, G-Rg2, G-F1, G-Rh1) and protopanaxatriol in human plasma and urine by LC-MS/MS and its application in a pharmacokinetics study of G-Re in volunteers.


Ginsenoside Re (G-Re) improved the memory function of experimental animals in a preclinical study. Several types of saponins including G-Rg1, G-Rg2, G-F1, G-Rh1, and protopanaxatriol (PPT) may be the metabolites of G-Re according to reports from preclinical trials. In order to support a study of the pharmacokinetics of G-Re, an analytical method for G-Re… (More)
