Abstract A high performance liquid chromatographic system with chemiluminescence detection (HPLC-CL) was used for determining phospholipid hydroperoxides in human plasma low density lipoprotein (LDL). This system involved separation of phospholipids from LDL-total lipids with normal phase silica gel HPLC and post-column detection of hydroperoxide-dependent chemiluminescence produced by luminol oxidation during the reaction of hydroperoxide with cytochrome c-haeme. By using HPLC-CL, we could detect phosphatidylcholine hydroperoxide (PCOOH) in human plasma LDL, and the LDL-PCOOH concentration was significantly higher in patients with atherosclerosis and hyperlipidemia than that of healthy volunteers. The LDL-PCOOH level was proportional to the plasma total cholesterol concentration.
