Rapid and sensitive determination of acetylsalicylic acid and salicylic acid in plasma using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry: application to pharmacokinetic study.


PMID 19358313

Abstract

A simple and sensitive analytical method using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) for determination of acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin, ASA) and its major metabolite, salicylic acid (SA), in animal plasma has been developed and validated. Both ASA and SA in plasma samples containing potassium fluoride were extracted using acetonitrile (protein precipitation) with 0.1% formic acid in it. 6-Methoxysalicylic acid was used as the internal standard (IS). The compounds were separated on a reversed-phase column. The multiple reaction monitoring mode was used with ion transitions of m/z 178.9 --> 136.8, 137.0 --> 93.0 and 167.0 --> 123.0 for ASA, SA and IS, respectively. The lower limits of quantification for ASA and SA were 3 and 30 ng/mL, respectively. The developed method was successfully applied for the evaluation of pharmacokinetics of ASA and SA after p.o. and i.v. administration of 1 mg/kg to rats.
