Abstract

Dalbavancin (DBV) is a long-acting antistaphylococcal lypoglycopeptide that is being increasingly used for long-term treatment of a wide range of subacute and/or chronic infections, mainly osteo-articular infections (OAI). Population pharmacokinetic studies showed that two 1500 mg doses 1 week apart can ensure effective treatment for several weeks. In this scenario, therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) can be a helpful tool for providing clinicians with real-time feedback on the duration of optimal treatment by measuring drug concentrations over time in each single patient. The aim of this study was to develop and validate a fast and simple analytical method based on the Liquid Chromatography-Isotope Dilution Tandem Mass Spectrometry (ITD LC-MS/MS) technique for measuring DBV concentrations in human plasma microsamples. It will allow an innovative, very convenient and minimally invasive way of sampling. Analysis was performed by simple single-step sample preparation and very short instrumental run time (4 min). Analytical performance met all criteria in terms of specificity, sensitivity, linearity, precision, accuracy, matrix effect, extraction recovery, limit of quantification, dilution integrity and stability under different conditions set by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for drug quantification by means of bioanalytical methods. The method was successfully applied for measuring DBV concentrations (range = 2.0-77.0 mg/L) in a cohort of patients receiving long-term DBV treatment of subacute and/or chronic infections.
