40] used a commercially available sandwich ELISA (Mercodia, Uppsala, Sweden) for analysis of ox-LDL in dialysis patients. This assay is based on murine monoclonal antibody directed against a conformational epitope in the apoB-100 moiety generated due to reaction of lysine residues with aldehydes, and the assay is specific for ox-LDL. Lipid peroxidation also generates hydrocarbons such as ethane and pentane, which are excreted in breath and can be analyzed in breath condensate (commercially available instruments are available for breath collection) using gas chromatography or gas chromatography combined with mass spectrometry.
