Quinolone antibiotic residues may pose potential threat to human health. A rapid and sensitive method was developed for the determination of quinolone residues in human serum and urine. After solid phase extraction (SPE) process, eight quinolone residues were analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) using ciprofloxacin-d8 as the internal standard. The relative standard deviation of intra-day and inter-day precision for the eight quinolones were less than 7.52% and the accuracies ranged from 95.8% to 103% in human serum, and from 94.1% to 104% in human urine. The extraction recoveries for the eight quinolones varied from 80.2% to 113% in human serum and 83.4% to 117% in human urine. The limit of detection for the eight quinolones was 0.50-1.00 ng/mL. Quinolone antibiotic residues in human serum and urine from 12 volunteers were successfully analyzed with the validated method. The SPE-HPLC-MS/MS method was useful for accurate determination of quinolone antibiotic residues in human body.

Normal human serum albumin mildly iodinated with radioactive iodine (131-I) which has a half-life of 8 days, and emits beta and gamma rays. It is used as a diagnostic aid in blood volume determination. (from Merck Index, 11th ed)
A semisynthetic cephalosporin analog with broad-spectrum antibiotic action due to inhibition of bacterial cell wall synthesis. It attains high serum levels and is excreted quickly via the urine.
A class of dibenzylbutane derivatives which occurs in higher plants and in fluids (bile, serum, urine, etc.) in man and other animals. These compounds, which have a potential anti-cancer role, can be synthesized in vitro by human fecal flora. (From Singleton & Sainsbury, Dictionary of Microbiology and Molecular Biology, 2d ed)
