The biomedically and neurochemically important compounds 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) and homovanillic acid (HVA) have been simultaneously determined in human urine after reverse-phase two-dimensional high-performance liquid chromatography. A 10-fold-diluted urine sample (20 microliters) is first separated on a C18 column (30 X 0.39 cm) using an 85%(More)
Levels of whole blood serotonin and tryptophan were measured in 11 human subjects after the consumption of a meal. Blood samples were obtained at 30 and 15 min before the meal and at 15, 30, and 60 min postcibal. One-hour urine specimens were collected for 5 subjects at 0, 60, and 120 min. Whole blood serotonin and tryptophan and urinary(More)
