Mass spectrometry of new growth promoting drugs : hydantoin-derived selective androgen receptor modulators and growth hormone secretagogues

Publikation: Beitrag in Buch/Bericht/KonferenzbandKonferenzbeitrag - Aufsatz in KonferenzbandForschung


The drugs donepezil as well as rivastigmine are commonly used for the treatment of symptoms arising from Alzheimer's disease by extending the half-life of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine by inhibition of its hydrolysis mediated by acetylcholine esterase. The increased concentration of hypothalamic acetylcholine results in a suppression of somatostatin, a fact which is assumed to cause an improved availability of endogenously produced GH. A screening and confirmation assay for donepezil, rivastigmine, galantamine, as well as some major metabolites and a structural analogue to SM-130686 in human urine was developed based an mass spectrometric studies using LC-ESI-MS/MS. New growth promoting drugs based on either GH secretagogue or SARM activity were studied using synthesized and commercially available reference material and high resolution/high accuracy MSn. Based on characteristic product ions drugs, were measured from urine specimens employing LC-MS/MS instruments that shall allow their detection in doping control samples. Neither bicyclic hydantoins nor orally active GH secretagogues such as compound 1 have received clinical approval yet, but their potential for being misused in sports is very high and test methods might be necessary very soon.
