Among markers for oxidative stress urinary excretion 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-oxodGuo) and 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-guanosine (8-oxoGuo) have been widely used in controlled and epidemiological studies, and are considered to represent intracellular markers of oxidation of DNA and RNA in the entire organism, respectively. Although being non-invasive, urinary methods have shortcomings. There is no established method for analysis of 8-oxodGuo and 8-oxoGuo in plasma and the few plasma values presented in the literature vary greatly. We here present a liquid chromatography mass spectrometry method with full validation for analysis of 8-oxodGuo and 8-oxoGuo in plasma. Further, we investigated the basis for our previously physiological model and show that a single plasma sample can be used to estimate the 24-h production of 8-oxoGuo, whereas we challenge the use of urinary 8-oxodGuo/creatinine ratio or plasma 8-oxodGuo as measures of oxidative stress.
