AbstractA sensitive and specific liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometric method was developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of rosuvastatin (ROS) and N-desmethyl rosuvastatin (NOR-ROS) in human plasma using deuterium-labeled internal standards. The plasma samples were prepared using liquid-liquid extraction with diethyl ether. Chromatographic separation was accomplished on an Xterra MS C-18 column. The mobile phase consisted of a gradient mixture of 15 mu mol/L ammonium acetate in water and in methanol, maintained at a flow rate of 0.4mL/min. Mass spectrometric detection was carried out in negative electrospray ionization mode and monitored by quantification and qualification transitions for each analyte. Using 300 L plasma samples, the lower limits of quantification of ROS and NOR-ROS were 0.05 and 0.02 mu g/L respectively. The linearity of ROS and NOR-ROS ranged from 0.05 to 42 and 0.02 to 14 mu g/L respectively. The relative standard deviations of ROS and NOR-ROS were <13 and 9%, respectively, while the deviations from expected values were within -4.7-9.8 and -5.2-4.6%, respectively. The present method offered high sensitivity and was successfully applied to a 24h pharmacokinetic study of ROS and NOR-ROS in healthy subjects receiving a single dose of 10mg ROS.
