We report a very rapid and simple isocratic reversed-phase HPLC separation of malondialdehyde (MDA) in normal human plasma without previous purification of the MDA-2-thiobarbituric acid (TBA) complex. The separation of MDA-TBA complex was performed using a 250 X 4.6 mm Nucleosil-5C18 column with a mobile phase composed of 35% methanol and 65% 50 mM sodium phosphate buffer, pH 7.0. Samples of 50 mu l (composed of 100 mu l plasma mixed with 1.0 ml of 0.2% 2-thiobarbituric acid in 2 M sodium acetate buffer containing 1 mM diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid, pH 3.5, and 10 mu l of 5% 2,6-di-tert.-butyl-4-methylphenol in 96% ethanol, incubated at 95 degrees C for 45 min [K. Fukunaga, K. Takama and T. Suzuki, Anal. Biochem., 230 (1995) 20] were injected into the column. The MDA-TBA complex was eluted at a flow-rate of 1 ml/min and monitored by fluorescence detection with excitation at 515 nm and emission at 553 nm. Analysis of groups of normal male and female volunteers gave plasma levels of MDA of 1.076 nmol/ml with a coefficient of variation of about 58%. No significant statistical differences were found between male and female groups, and no correlation was discovered on the age. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
