Abstract

During the preclinical study of the original functional peptide, SR-0379, a sensitive liquid chromatographytandem mass spectrometry method was newly developed to study the pharmacokinetics of SR-0379 in rat plasma and subcutaneous tissue samples. Although SR-0379 was unstable in the rat plasma and subcutaneous tissue samples, pretreatment with EDTA and phosphoric acid (4 %) inhibited its degradation. The lower limits of quantification (LLOQ) for SR- 0379 were fully validated as 5 ng/ml in plasma and 5 ng/g in tissue with acceptable linearity, intra- and inter-assay precisions, and accuracy. Measurement of SR-0379 concentration in plasma after intravenous injection via LC-MS/MS yields plasma concentration-time curves (AUC0-
