Bipolar disorder (BD) is a mental disorder characterized by recurrent relapses of affective episodes, cognitive impairment, illness progression, and reduced life expectancy. Increased systemic oxidatively generated nucleoside damage have been found in some neurodegenerative disorders and in BD. As the first, this naturalistic prospective, longitudinal follow-up case-control study investigated cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) oxidative stress markers 8-oxo-7,8-dihydroguanosine (8-oxoGuo) and 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-oxodG) that relate to RNA and DNA damage, respectively. Patients with BD (n = 86, 51% female) and gender-and-age-matched healthy control individuals (HC; n = 44, 44% female) were evaluated at baseline (T0), during (T1) and after a new affective episode (T2), if it occurred, and after a year (T3). Cerebrospinal and urine oxidative stress markers were analyzed using ultra-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. CSF-8-oxoGuo was statistically significantly higher by 18% (p = 0.003) in BD versus HC at T0, and by 22% (p = 0) at T3. CSF-8-oxoGuo had increased by 15% (p = 0.042) from T0 to T3, and by 14% (p = 0.021) from T2 to T3 in patients, who experienced an episode during follow-up. CSF-8-oxodG had increased by 26% (p = 0.054) from T0 to T2 and decreased by 19% (p = 0.041) from T2 to T3 in patients, who experienced an episode during follow-up. CSF-8-oxoGuo did not show a statistically significant change in HC during the one-year follow-up. CSF and urine-8-oxoGuo levels correlated moderately. In conclusion, CSF oxidative stress marker of RNA damage 8-oxoGuo showed both state and trait dependence in BD and stability in HC. Central RNA damage may be a potential biomarker for BD.
