Malondialdehyde Derivatives in Urine
Malondialdehyde (MDA) excretion in rat urine is responsive to peroxidation of dietary lipids and to factors which increase lipid peroxidation in vivo: vitamin E deficiency and administration of iron, CCI4 or adriamycin. Urinary MDA is also increased by administration of the lipolytic hormones ACTH and epinephrine and by fasting, particularly when the tissues have been enriched by feeding highly unsaturated fish oil fatty acids.1,2
