Summary of "LC-MS/MS method for the determination of the prodrug aripiprazole lauroxil and its three metabolites in plasma and its application to in vitro biotransformation and animal pharmacokinetic studies."

A sensitive and selective LC-MS/MS method for determination of the prodrug aripiprazole lauroxil (AL) and the three metabolites (N-hydroxymethyl aripiprazole [NHA], aripiprazole [ARP], and dehydro aripiprazole [DHA]) in plasma was developed using ARP-das an internal standard. The analytes were determined on an AB Sciex Triple Quad™ 4500 system using positive ion electrospray ionization and selected multiple reaction monitoring mode. Solid phase extraction was applied for sample preparation for AL, ARP, and DHA, and protein precipitation for NHA. Chromatographic separation was performed on an Agilent Eclipse XDB-CN column (100 × 2.1 mm i.d., 3.5 μm) using the mobile phase of water and acetonitrile (25:75, v/v) containing 0.1% formic acid with a flow rate of 0.5 mL/min. The linear ranges for AL, NHA, ARP, and DHA were 0.5-50 ng/mL, 1.0-50 ng/mL, 0.5-50 ng/mL, and 0.05-5.0 ng/mL, respectively. The average recovery in the plasma sample was stable and reproducible. The precision and accuracy of the intra- and inter-run were within assay variability criteria limits. The developed method was suitable for in vitro biotransformation studies in plasma and animal pharmacokinetic studies after intramuscular injection of AL formulations.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A sulfinylindene derivative prodrug whose sulfinyl moiety is converted in vivo to an active NSAID analgesic. Specifically, the prodrug is converted by liver enzymes to a sulfide which is excreted in the bile and then reabsorbed from the intestine. This helps to maintain constant blood levels with reduced gastrointestinal side effects.

A method of tissue ablation and bleeding control that uses argon plasma (ionized argon gas) to deliver a current of thermocoagulating energy to the area of tissue to be coagulated.

Removal of plasma and replacement with various fluids, e.g., fresh frozen plasma, plasma protein fractions (PPF), albumin preparations, dextran solutions, saline. Used in treatment of autoimmune diseases, immune complex diseases, diseases of excess plasma factors, and other conditions.

A method for diagnosis of fetal diseases by sampling the cells of the placental chorionic villi for DNA analysis, presence of bacteria, concentration of metabolites, etc. The advantage over amniocentesis is that the procedure can be carried out in the first trimester.

Non-invasive method of vascular imaging and determination of internal anatomy without injection of contrast media or radiation exposure. The technique is used especially in CEREBRAL ANGIOGRAPHY as well as for studies of other vascular structures.
