Determination of sialic acids in the serum of cancer patients by capillary electrophoresis.

A novel method for the determination of N-acetylneuraminic acid (NANA) and N-glycolylneuraminic acid (NGNA) was developed by using high-performance capillary electrophoresis (HPCE) with UV detection at 195 nm. NANA and NGNA were separated directly and analyzed without pre- or postcolumn derivation. The detection limit of NANA is 9.6 x 10(-6) mol L(-1) and for mass 3.879 x 10(-14) mol (39 fmol). This method was applied for the determination of NANA in 30 normal human and 72 cancer patients. The results demonstrated that NANA in the sera of cancer patients increased significantly as compared with the normal human (P < 0.001). The new method is simple and sensitive, and is suitable for basic research and clinical application to malignant tumors.[1]
