Abstract

A bioanalytical method was developed and validated to estimate donepezil, 6-desmethyl donepezil and 5-desmethyl donepezil simultaneously in human plasma using galantamine as an internal standard (IS). The chromatographic separation was achieved on a reverse-phase XTerra RP (150 × 4.6 mm, 5 µm) column without affecting recovery (mean recovery > 60% with CV < 10%) for all analytes. ESI-MS/MS multiple reaction monitoring in positive polarity was used to detect mass pairs for donepezil (m/z 380.3 → 91.3), 6-desmethyl donepezil (m/z 366.4 → 91.3), 5-desmethyl donepezil (m/z 366.4 → 91.3) and galantamine m/z (288.1 → 213.0). The linearity was established over a dynamic range of 0.339-51.870, 0.100-15.380 and 0.103-15.763 ng/mL for donepezil, 6-desmethyl donepezil and 5-desmethyl donepezil, respectively. The current method shows that minimal conversion of labile metabolites to parent donepezil in plasma as stability was successfully achieved for 211 days at -15 °C storage temperature. The method was successfully applied to a clinical study after administration of 10 mg donepezil tablets to healthy male Indian volunteers.
