Simultaneous determination of prednisolone, prednisone, cortisol, and cortisone in plasma by GC-MS: estimating unbound prednisolone concentration in patients with nephrotic syndrome during oral prednisolone therapy.


Individual variability of the pharmacokinetics of prednisolone based on the unbound concentration in plasma is of significant clinical consideration. The unbound concentrations of prednisolone were measured in 10 patients with nephrotic syndrome, two patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, and one patient with dermatomyositis by examining protein… (More)
