Abstract

Oxaliplatin is a medically-important platinum-based drug for treating advanced colorectal cancer, but its clinical pharmacokinetics and biotransformation are not well understood. We report the development of a reliable sample preparation procedure and a specific HPLC-ICP-MS assay for oxaliplatin and its putative active biotransformation product Pt(R,R-diaminocyclohexane)Cl2 [Pt(DACH)Cl2], and their application to the analysis of the plasma of patients undergoing a standard 2 h infusion of oxaliplatin. HPLC conditions were identified for separating intact oxaliplatin and Pt(DACH)Cl2 that were compatible with on-line detection by ICP-MS. Plasma samples were processed immediately after collection by methanol deproteinization, then stored under conditions in which the analytes of interest were stable. The linearity of calibration curves (R2 0.9974), intra- and inter-assay accuracy (101107%) and precision (3.307.12%, n 5), drug recovery (95108%), and short- and long-term stability were adequate to quantify oxaliplatin. Clinical application of the assay showed that intact oxaliplatin was the major active platinum species in the plasma of colorectal cancer patients given oxaliplatin. Pt(DACH)Cl2 was undetectable in patient samples despite the HPLC-ICP-MS assay having a limit of detection of 5 nM (1.9 ppb) for this platinum species.
