Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Marinobufagenin (MBG) is a bufadienolide cardiotonic steroid implicated in volume expansion-mediated hypertensive states including essential hypertension and preeclampsia (PE). Endogenous MBG has vasoconstrictive and cardiotonic properties by inhibiting the α1-isoform of the Na+,K+-ATPase pump, causing hypertension and natriuresis. Elevated endogenous MBG-like material has been described by poor-specific immunoassays in rat models of salt-sensitive preeclampsia as well as in preeclamptic human patients [1,2]. As it appears prior the development of the main symptoms of PE, MBG might be considered as one of the potential biomarkers for PE [3]. The weak specificity and the high variability of the published immunoassays gives no certification about endogenous MBG existence [4,5]. This led us to optimize a highly specific and sensitive analytical method relying on LC-MS/MS to measure MBG plasma levels. Pure MBG standard was obtained by extraction and purification from Bufo Marinus toad venom. Identity of the purified standard was confirmed using TLC-MS, QTOF and RMN. Thanks to pure MBG we have developed a high-specific and ultra-sensitive UPLC-MS/MS assay able to determine MBG in human plasma. Testosterone-d3 was used as internal standard and 2 mass transitions were recorded for each compound. A plasma extraction procedure based on SLE was elaborated to concentrate and clean the plasma sample prior to its analysis. The method is now being applied to a local clinical study allowing us to measure MBG plasma levels and biological parameters in preeclamptic women compared to non-pathological pregnancies. The developed LC-MS/MS assay was fully validated over a concentration range of 10 pg/mL to 500 pg/mL plasmatic MBG based on an internationally recognized validation strategy [6]. Accuracy profiles with one-sided 95% confidence interval and 30 % acceptance limits, as accepted by the AAPS guidelines [7], were built to evaluate the total error of the method. Matrix-effect and method recovery were evaluated for 4 different concentrations (n = 3) to 67.7% and 98.9% respectively. Stability tests, selectivity and QC analyses were also performed and will be presented. These results give us the opportunity to investigate MBG in non-pathological pregnancy as well as in preeclampsia. Preliminary results obtained by a previous LC-MS/MS assay allowed us to authenticate the presence of MBG in non-pregnant women as well as in early pregnancy. These preliminary pioneering results are giving a promising new perspective for preeclampsia risk assessment in pregnancy.
