Age-related changes in the urinary excretion of aldehydes arising from lipid peroxidation have been investigated in male Sprague-Dawley rats aged 2, 4, 6, 12, 18, 24 and 27 months, fed ad libitum or subjected to two different regimens of calorie restriction (namely every-other-day ad libitum feeding--EOD--and 40% calorie restriction--40%DR). For only some age groups, results were compared with those obtained in ad libitum fed male Fisher 344 and Lewis rats. Results show that the urinary excretion of malondialdehyde (MDA) and formaldehyde (FA) significantly decreases, whereas that of propionaldehyde (PROP) progressively increases with age, and that urinary excretion of acetaldehyde (ACT) does not show any significant age-related variations. Dietary restriction significantly increases the urinary levels of MDA, FA and PROP without affecting their age-related modifications, and does not affect ACT urinary excretion. In conclusion, results indicate that the quantitative pattern of aldehyde production and urinary excretion may be altered by the process of aging.
