Aim: AVI-7100 (Radavirsen) is a 20-mer phosphorodiamidate morpholino oligomer (PMOplus®) for the treatment of influenza. Results/methodology: An automated solid-phase extraction method was used to extract plasma samples (200 μl). The extracts were analyzed using liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry under the positive ionization mode. This method was fully validated over the calibration curve range of 5.00–1000 ng/ml. The between-run precision and accuracy ranged from 0.0 to 5.2% relative standard deviation and 91.6 to 100.0% of nominal for all quality control concentrations, including the lower limit of quantitation. Discussion/conclusion: This is the first liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry method for the measurement of AVI-7100 concentrations in human plasma. It has been used to support regulated bioanalysis.
