Objectives: In determining the plasma malondialdehyde (MDA) levels in some Taiwanese college students, we found rather different results by using different thiobarbituric acid (TBA) tests, even by the high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)-based methods. Here, we re-evaluated four commonly used TBA tests and improved the HPLC-based test. Design and Methods: We used the blood plasma of 16 college volunteers to determine plasma MDA by using four methods: a spectrophotometric measurement of thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS) in the TCA-supernatant of plasma (Method A); a fluorescence measurement of plasma lipid peroxides (Method B); and two different HPLC-based measurements of MDA with either 532-nm measurement (Method C, HPLC/532 nm) or fluorescence measurement (Method D, HPLC/fluor.). Results: The levels of MDA or TBA reactive substances obtained from the four methods differed substantially (0.39 +/- 0.15; 2.14 +/- 0.73; 0.75 +/- 0.22; and 0.38 +/- 0.15 muM for Methods A, B, C, and D, respectively). The results were positively correlated between Methods A and B (r = 0.740, p < 0.02) and between Methods C and D (r = 0.516, p < 0.05). However, results were negatively correlated between Methods B and D (r = -0.548, p < 0.05). Because most plasma MDA is bound to proteins, we modified the HPLC-based methods (C and D) by adding an alkaline hydrolysis step, and the plasma TBA-MDA adduct detected by HPLC/532 nm was referred to as total MDA. Results show that alkaline hydrolysis was a critical step for measurement of total MDA in plasma because this treatment led to release of MDA from plasma proteins. We also adapted the potassium iodide (KI) treatment of plasma from Method D to reduce lipid hydroperoxides. Our modified method gave a total MDA level in the 16 volunteers of
