Summary of "Simultaneous determination of FLZ and its metabolite (M1) in human plasma and urine by UHPLC-MS/MS: Application to a pharmacokinetic study."

FLZ is a novel anti-Parkinson's disease candidate drug. The main active metabolite is FLZ O-dealkylation (M1) in preclinical studies. A reliable ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC-MS/MS) quantitation method was developed for the simultaneous determination of FLZ and M1 with low limits of quantitation in human plasma (0.1 ng/mL) and urine (0.5 ng/mL). The plasma and urine samples were both purified by full-automatic solid phase extraction (SPE) method with ensured high extraction recovery and little matrix effect for both analytes, and then separated on a BEH C column (2.1 × 50 mm, 1.7 μm). Detection and quantification were performed using an electrospray ionization (ESI) source in positive mode by multiple reaction monitoring (MRM). The precursor to product ion transitions were monitored at m/z 450.3→313.2 for FLZ, m/z 436.3→299.1 for M1, m/z 462.6→142.0 for [D]-FLZ (internal standard of FLZ) and m/z 447.2→125.2 for [D]-M1 (internal standard of M1), respectively. This method showed good linearity, accuracy, precision and stability in the range of 0.1-100 ng/mL in plasma and 0.5-500 ng/mL in urine of two analytes. Finally, the developed method was successfully applied to a pharmacokinetic research in Chinese healthy volunteers after oral administration of FLZ tablets.
