Therapeutic drug monitoring

Quantification of 11 Therapeutic Kinase Inhibitors in Human Plasma for Therapeutic Drug Monitoring Using Liquid Chromatography Coupled With Tandem Mass Spectrometry.


PMID 27749781

Abstract

A liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry assay was developed to facilitate therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) for 10 anticancer compounds (dasatinib, erlotinib, gefitinib, imatinib, lapatinib, nilotinib, pazopanib, sorafenib, sunitinib, and vemurafenib) and the active metabolite, N-desethyl-sunitinib. The TDM assay is based on reversed-phase chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry in the positive ion mode using multiple reaction monitoring for analyte quantification. Stable isotopically labeled compounds were used as internal standards. The sample pretreatment consisted of protein precipitation with acetonitrile using a small plasma volume of 50 μL. The validation procedures were based on the guidelines on bioanalytical methods issued by the US Food and Drug Administration and were modified to fit the requirements of the clinical TDM environment. The method was validated over a linear range of 5.00-100 ng/mL for dasatinib, sunitinib, and N-desethyl-sunitinib; 50.0-1000 ng/mL for gefitinib and lapatinib; 125-2500 ng/mL for erlotinib, imatinib, and nilotinib; and 500-10,000 ng/mL for pazopanib, sorafenib, and vemurafenib. The results of the validation study demonstrated good intra-assay and interassay accuracy (bias <6.0%) and precision (12.2%) for all analytes. This newly validated method met the criteria for TDM and has successfully been applied to routine TDM service for tyrosine kinase inhibitors.
