Abstract: Meisoindigo has been a routine therapeutic agent in the clinical treatment of chronic myelogenous leukemia in China since the 1980s. However, information relevant to in vivo metabolism of meisoindigo is absent so far. In this study, in vivo circulatory metabolites of meisoindigo in rat plasma, as well as excretory metabolites in rat urine and feces, were identified by liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS). Integration of multiple reaction monitoring with conventional metabolic profiling methodology was adopted to enable a more sensitive detection of in vivo metabolites. By comparing with the MS/MS spectra and retention times of the in vitro reduced metabolites, the major metabolites in rat plasma were proposed to form from 3,3(double bond reduction, whereas the minor metabolites were formed from reduction followed by N-demethylation, and reduction followed by phenyl mono-oxidation. The major metabolites in the rat urine were proposed to form from reduction followed by phenyl mono-oxidation, and its glucuronide conjugation and sulfate conjugation, whereas the minor metabolites were formed from 3,3(double bond reduction, N-demethylation, reduction followed by N-demethylation, phenyl di-oxidation, phenyl mono-oxidation and its glucuronide conjugation and sulfate conjugation. The major metabolites in the rat feces were proposed to form from reduction followed by phenyl mono-oxidation, whereas the minor metabolites were formed from reduction followed by N-demethylation, and reduction followed by phenyl di-oxidation. The phase I metabolic pathways showed a significant in vitro-in vivo correlation in rat. © 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
