The straight chain aliphatic hydrocarbons ethane and pentane have been advocated as noninvasive markers of free-radical induced lipid peroxidation in humans. In in vitro studies, the evolution of ethane and pentane as end products of n-3 and n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, respectively, correlates very well with other markers of lipid peroxidation and even seems to be the most sensitive test available. In laboratory animals the use of both hydrocarbons as in vivo markers of lipid peroxidation… CONTINUE READING
