The bioanalysis of vinorelbine and 4-O-deacetylvinorelbine in human and mouse plasma using high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with heated electrospray ionization tandem mass-spectrometry.

A sensitive, specific and efficient high-performance liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry assay for the simultaneous determination of vinorelbine and its metabolite 4-O-deacetylvinorelbine in human and mouse plasma is presented. Heated electrospray ionization was applied followed by tandem mass spectrometry. A 50 microL plasma aliquot was protein… CONTINUE READING
