A sensitive and low-cost analytical method has been developed to determine 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) and 8-nitroguanine (8-NO(2)Gua) based on capillary electrophoresis with amperometric detection (CE-AD) after solid phase extraction (SPE). Under optimized condition, these two markers were well separated from other components coexisting in urine, exhibiting a linear calibration over the concentration range of 0.1-50.0 μg/mL with the detection limits ranging from 0.02 to 0.06 μg/mL. The relative standard deviations (RSDs) were in the range of 0.1-2.1% for peak area, 0.1-1.5% for migration time, respectively. The average recovery and RSD were within the range of 100.0-108.0% and 0.1-1.7%, respectively. It was found that the urinary contents of 8-OHdG and 8-NO(2)Gua in cancer patients were significantly higher than those in healthy ones.
