Comparison of mAbs Levels with LCCMS/MS Method versus References Methods A total of 142 plasma samples were assayed. The median concentration (range) was 88.5 (6.1C225.2) g/mL for Beva (= 16), 152.7 (13.2C288.0) g/mL for Cetux (= 21), 3.9 (1.1C14.2) g/mL for Ipi (= 12), 28.0 (11.4C63.5) g/mL for Nivo (= 21), 26.8 (4.2C55.5) g/mL for Pembro (= 21), 57.7 (7.4C234.9) g/mL for Ritux (= 28) and 95.4 (30.4C241.0) g/mL for Trastu (= 23). The interchangeability of the present multiplex WYC-209 LCCMS/MS method could not be tested for Ipi due to the lack of international laboratories able to assay this mAb. Overall, 130 plasma samples were analyzed for the cross-validation. Figure 4 presents Passing Bablok and BlandCAltman plots for each assay pair.

BlandCAltman analysis of the difference between LCCMS/MS and reference method for (A) bevacizumab, (B) cetuximab, (C) nivolumab, (D) pembrolizumab, (E) rituximab, (F) trastuzumab. The mean 1.96 standard deviation lines (95% limits of agreement) are plotted for reference. The Passing-Bablok regression revealed no significant deviation from linearity for all Goat polyclonal to IgG (H+L) mAbs (Cusum test). In comparison with reference methods, the multiplex LCCMS/MS method overestimated concentrations by 13.2% for Beva and 4.9% for Pembro, while it underestimated concentrations for Cetux, Nivo, Ritux and Trastu (17.1%, 3.0%, 9.1%, and 11.6%, respectively). Table 2 summarizes the method agreement between each assay pair. Results showed that the mean absolute bias of measured concentrations between multiplex and reference methods was 9.82% (range 3.0C17.1%). Overall, these results suggest the interchangeability of the present multiplex LC-MS/MS method with published reference methods for Beva, Cetux, Nivo, Pembro, Ritux and Trastu.

During the analytical validation steps, this WYC-209 interference was correctly separated and always eluted a few seconds before the peak of nivolumab (Figure 1, panel 1). In case of insufficient separation, the accuracy at LLOQ and low IQC for Nivo did not meet the acceptance criteria, thus impacting on low plasma concentrations (i.e., 6.0 g/mL). This interference is probably due to a peptide from a plasma protein such as physiological IgG which has a and a sequence very close to the peptide of interest when assaying Nivo. To be sure that the interference is correctly separated from Nivo, users should therefore analyze double-blank plasma sample and a blank plasma sample (i.e., matrix spiked with the stable labelled internal standard, which does not show any interference). The WYC-209 contaminating peak visible in the double-blank should have a different retention time than the peak of the labeled.
