Abstract

Purpose: This study aimed to develop a sensitive, quantitative assay for the antimalarial piperaquine (PQ) and its metabolites M1 and M2 in human plasma. Results: Analytes were gradiently separated on a C18 column and detected with a Sciex API 4000 MS/MS with an ESI source operated in the positive ion mode with deuterated PQ as internal standard. The response was linear in the range 3.9-2508 nM with a runtime of 7.0 min per sample. The method was applied to clinical samples from healthy volunteers. Conclusion: This LC-MS/MS method for the simultaneous quantitation of PQ and two of its metabolites in plasma may prove helpful for assessment of metabolite safety issues in vivo.
