A liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) analytical procedure, using a single column for sample clean-up, enrichment and separation, has been developed for the determination of the peptide AM336 in monkey cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). CSF samples were injected and analyzed using a polymer-coated mixed-function high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) column with gradient elution and application of a timed valve-switching event. The mass spectrometer was operated in the positive electrospray ionization (ESI(+)) mode with single ion recording (SIR) at m/z 920. The method was validated, yielding calibration curves with correlation coefficients greater than 0.9892. Assay precision and accuracy were evaluated by direct injection of AM336-fortified CSF samples at three concentration levels. Analyzed concentrations ranged from 99.93 to 113.1% of their respective theoretical concentrations with coefficients of variation below 9.0%. An evaluation of the signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio for a 200 ng/mL calibration standard, considered to be the lower limit of quantitation (LLOQ), resulted in an estimated limit of detection (LOD) of 31.2 ng/mL. Preliminary data suggest the possibility of using this method to analyze AM336 also in plasma samples, pending the successful outcome of additional investigations.
