Abstract

A highly sensitive and selective glass capillary gas chromatographic negative ion chemical ionization mass spectrometric assay was developed to measure peptidoaminobenzophenone(2-o-chlorobenzoyl-4-chloro-N-methyl-N'-glycylglycinanilide) and its metabolites; chlorodiazepam, chlorodesmethyldiazepam and lorazepam in human plasma. As peptidoaminobenzophenone underwent pyrolysis during gas chromatography, it was converted to a thermally stable aminoquinolone. Internal standards for these compounds were the respective deuterium labelled compounds. Calibration curves were prepared for the range of 1-100 ng ml-1. Interference by endogenous substances was negligible in the isobutane negative ion chemical ionization mode in contrast to the electron impact or positive ion chemical ionization mode. This method was used to determine the plasma levels in humans following oral administration of two 5 mg doses.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
