摘要：We aim to develop a rapid, simple, sensitive and specific LC-MS/MS method for the simultaneous quantification of lercanidipine, benazepril and benazeprilat in plasma. It is performed on the Agilent 6410 LC-MS/MS under the multiple-reaction monitoring (MRM) mode with electrospray ionization. Gliclazide was used as the internal standard (IS). Analytes and IS were extracted from plasma by solid-phase extraction. The reconstituted samples were chromatographed on a Diamond C _(18) (150mm×4.6mm, 5μm) column. The mobile phase was composed of 0.1% acetic acid-acetonitrile (50:50, v/v), with gradient flow rates: 0.6mL/min (0-4.55min); 4.55-4.65min, 1mL/min; 1mL/min (4.65-9.5min); 9.5-9.6min, 0.6mL/min; 0.6mL/min (9.6-10min). Method validation demonstrated that the method was of satisfactory specificity, sensitivity, precision and accuracy in linear ranges of 1-2000ng/mL for lercanidipine, 1-2000ng/mL for benazepril and 1-1600ng/mL for benazeprilat, respectively. The precision (RSD%) was better than 15, and the lower limit of quantitation was identifiable and reproducible at 1ng/mL for the three analytes. The plasma samples were stable after being stored for more than 60 days and after two freeze-thaw cycles (-20 to -25°C). It is demonstrated that this method was successfully applied to samples from a toxicokinetics study of a compound of lercanidipine and benazepril in beagle dogs.
