Stereoselective determination of the active metabolites of a new anti-inflammatory agent (CS-670) in human and rat plasma using antibody-mediated extraction and high-performance liquid chromatography.

The main metabolites of (+-)-2-[4-(2-oxocyclohexylidenemethyl)phenyl]propionic acid (CS-670), a new pro-drug anti-inflammatory agent of the 2-arylpropionic acid type, have one or two chiral centres arising from reduction of the oxocyclohexylidene moiety in addition to an original chiral centre in the propionic acid moiety. To determine these metabolites stereoselectively, antibody-mediated extraction was investigated as a stereoselective clean-up method prior to chiral HPLC. Immunoglobulin G, which recognizes each stereoisomeric cyclohexanol moiety, was coupled to cyanogen bromide-activated Sepharose 4B to prepare re-usable immobilized antibody, and its specificity was improved by examination of a washing process after charging of samples. Plasma extracted with the immobilized antibody column was derivatized with a chiral reagent to separate the enantiomers of the propionic acid moiety by HPLC. This newly developed analytical method clarified the stereoselective biotransformation of the pro-drug to pharmacologically active forms in humans and rats related to reduction of the oxocyclohexylidene moiety and chiral inversion in the propionic acid moiety.[1]
