RP-HPLC with UV detection is the method of choice for rapid identification and quantification of LT’s*. The large number of structurally related compounds precludes separating all of them within one system. Therefore RP-HPLC systems have been developed to isolate particular groups of compounds such as peptidoLT’s or LTB4 and its isomers. A RP-HPLC system now described allows the separation of a new metabolite of LTB4 from LTB4 and its trans isomers.
