LC-MS in Drug Bioanalysis
Clinical pharmacology plays an important role in today’s medicine. Due to the high sensitivity, selectivity, and affordability of a mass spectrometer (MS), the high performance liquid chromatography – mass spectrometry (LC-MS) analytical technique is widely used in the determination of drugs in human biological matrixes for clinical pharmacology. Specifically, LC-MS is used to analyze: anticancer drugs antidementia drugs antidepressant drugs antiepileptic drugs antifundal drug antimicrobial drugs antipsychotic drugs antiretroviral drugs anxiolytic/hypnotic drugs cardiac drugs drugs for addiction immunosuppressant drugs mood stabilizer drugs This book will primarily cover the various methods of validation for LC-MS techniques and applications used in modern clinical pharmacology.
First book to discuss the development and validation of LC-MS methods and their applications in analyzing a wide range of drugsWill facilitate pharmacologists, toxicologists, and physicians finding relevant analytical techniques in their clinical researchNo other title in the subject area deals with so many methodological chapters
