|Abstract:||A rapid, sensitive and specific LC‐MS/MS method was developed and validated for quantifying chlordesmethyldiazepam (CDDZ or delorazepam), the active metabolite of cloxazolam, in human plasma. In the analytical assay, bromazepam (internal standard) and CDDZ were extracted using a liquid‐liquid extraction (diethyl‐ether/hexane, 80/20, v/v) procedure. The LC‐MS/MS method on a RP‐C18 column had an overall run time of 5.0 min and was linear (1/x weighted) over the range 0.5–50 ng/mL (R > 0.999). The between‐run precision was 8.0% (1.5 ng/mL), 7.6% (9 ng/mL), 7.4% (40 ng/mL), and 10.9% at the low limit of quantification—LLOQ (0.500 ng/mL). The between‐run accuracies were 0.1, –1.5, –2.7 and 8.7% for the above mentioned concentrations, respectively. All current bioanalytical method validation requirements (FDA and ANVISA) were achieved and it was applied to the bioequivalence study (Cloxazolam—test, Eurofarma Lab. Ltda and Olcadil®— reference, Novartis Biociências S/A). The relative bioavailability between both formulations was assessed by calculating individual test/reference ratios for Cmax, AUClast and AUC0‐inf. The pharmacokinetic profiles indicated bioequivalence since all ratios were as proposed by FDA and ANVISA|
