Enalapril, enalaprilat levels in plasma, and the internal standard sitagliptin were measured by API 4000 LC-MS/MS.
For enalapril, enalaprilat, and IS, the matrix factor (MF) was assessed individually from 6 different plasma sources by calculating the ratio of the peak area in presence of matrix (spiked enalapril and enalaprilat in blank's supernatant) to the peak area in absence of matrix (pure solution for enalapril and enalaprilat).
Generally, the enalapril, enalaprilat, and IS were found stable under the different testing conditions with acceptable percent accuracy.
