A sensitive liquid chromatography-mass spectrometric method was validated for the quantification of RU38486 (mifepristone) in human and murine plasma. The analyte and internal standard (alfaxolone) were extracted by liquid-liquid extraction with diethyl ether, resolved on a C18 column using gradient elution with methanol and ammonium acetate and detected after positive electrospray ionization (m/z 430-->372; m/z 333-->297, respectively). Quantification was linear over the range 0.5-500ng (r(2)>0.997), precise and accurate (intra-assay RSD</=7.2%, RME</=8.2%; inter-assay RSD</=15.7% RME</=10.2%). The limit of quantification (LOQ) was 50pg injected on column, permitting reproducible analysis of RU38486 in small volumes of plasma.
