Abstract

CEP-18770, [(1R)-1-{[(2S,3R)-3-hydroxy-2-{[(6-phenyl-2-pyridinyl) carbonyl] amino} butanoyl] amino}-3-methylbutyl]boronic acid, is a novel proteasome inhibitor, now under early clinical evaluation as an anticancer agent. To investigate its clinical pharmacokinetics, a high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) method was developed and validated to measure the drug in human plasma, based on simple protein precipitation with acetonitrile after the addition of irbesartan as internal standard. The method requires a small volume of sample (100 mu l) and is rapid and selective, allowing good resolution of peaks in 5 min. It is sensitive, precise and accurate, with overall precision, expressed as coefficient of variation (CV%), always <10.0%, accuracy in the range 93.8-107.7% and high recovery, close to 100%. The limit of detection is 0.01 ng/ml and the lower limit of quantitation (LLOQ) is 0.20 ng/ml. The assay was validated in the range from the LLOQ up to 50.00 ng/ml. This is the first method developed and validated for analyzing a proteasome inhibitor with a boronic-acid-based structure in human plasma. The method was successfully applied to study the pharmacokinetics of CEP-18770 in cancer patients with solid tumors or multiple myeloma who had received the drug as a short intravenous bolus during the initial Phase I trial.
