Eicosanoids play an important role in homeostasis and in the pathogenesis of various human diseases. Pharmacological agents such as Ca2+ ionophores and Ca2+-ATPase inhibitors, as well as natural agonists such as formylmethionine-leucyl-phenylalanine (fMLP), can stimulate eicosanoid biosynthesis. The aims of this work were to develop a method to determine the eicosanoid profile of human plasma samples after whole blood stimulation and to assess differences between healthy and sick individuals. For this purpose, a liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method was partially validated for the quantification of 22 eicosanoids using human plasma from healthy volunteers. In addition, we optimized a method for the stimulation of eicosanoids in human whole blood. LC-MS/MS analyses were performed by negative electrospray ionization and multiple reaction monitoring. An assumption of linearity resulted in a regression coefficient a parts per thousand yen0.98 for all eicosanoids tested. The mean intra-assay and inter-assay accuracy and precision values had relative standard deviations and relative errors of a parts per thousand currency sign15 %, except for the lower limit of quantification, where these values were a parts per thousand currency sign20 %. For whole blood stimulation, four stimuli (fMLP, ionomycin, A23187, and thapsigargin) were tested. Results of the statistical analysis showed that A23187 and thapsigargin were potent stimuli for the production or liberation of eicosanoids. We next compared the eicosanoid profiles of stimulated whole blood samples of healthy volunteers to those of patients with sickle cell anemia (SCA) under treatment with hydroxyurea (HU) or after chronic red blood cell (RBC) transfusion. The results indicate that the method was sufficient to find a difference between lipid mediators released in whole blood of SCA patients and those of healthy subjects, mainly for 5-HETE, 12-HETE, LTB4, LTE4, TXB2, and PGE(2). In conclusion, our analytical method can detect significant changes in eicosanoid profiles in stimulated whole blood, which will contribute to establishing the eicosanoid profiles associated with different inflammatory and infectious diseases.
