New LC-MS/MS bioanalytical method for quantification of Estradiol and Estrone
A new method has been successfully developed and validated for determination of Unconjugated Estradiol and Estrone in human plasma by LC-MS/MS with LLOQ of 2 pg/mL and 5 pg/mL respectively.
The method involves a liquid-liquid extraction procedure and a subsequent derivatization procedure. Estradiol, Estrone and internal standards are measured by reversed phase ultra-high performance liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS).
The possible metabolite back conversion has been evaluated during method validation.
This method has been successfully used to analyze samples from different clinical studies and the incurred sample reproducibility has met all acceptance crieria.
The development of this assay adds to the list of high sensitivity methods at Anapharm together with Tiotropium, Fluticasone, Salmeterol, Formoterol or Ethinyl Estradiol.
Challenges in the Development of a Method for the Detection of Anti-PEGylated-aptamer Antibodies
Immunogenicity assays capable of properly determining the presence of anti-drug antibodies (ADA) and anti-PEG antibodies have been recognized of great importance due to the fact that pre-existing anti-PEG antibodies could have an impact on the efficacy of a drug coupled to polyethylene glycol (PEG).READ MORE
Challenges in the determination of two analytes with different physicochemical properties, Tapinarof and its main metabolite, Tapinarof Sulfate, at the low picogram level
The challenge of developing a new bioanalytical method considerably increases when two or more metabolites need to be simultaneously analysed. Their extraction and chromatography optimization can be further complicated if their physicochemical properties vary significantly. Method development may be even more difficult when low limits of quantitation are required, for instance, when evaluating the systemic adsorption of topical drugs.READ MORE
