The aim of this study was to determine 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OH-dG) levels in trichloroethylene (TCE)-exposed workers. Oxidative stress biomarkers and biochemical parameters were monitored among 26 TCE-exposed workers and 78 age-matched control subjects. Levels of urinary 8-OH-dG were analyzed by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry. Urinary 8-OH-dG levels were significantly higher for TCE-exposed group (p < .001). Spearman's correlation test revealed positive correlations between urinary trichloroacetic acid levels and age, urinary 8-OH-dG, urinary total oxidant status, and urinary total antioxidant status (p = .042, p < .001, p < .001, and p < .001, respectively). 8-OH-dG may be a useful marker to determine the extent of TCE exposure.
