Abstract

A functional and basic method for the quantitative analysis of urine cortisol (F) and cortisone (E) using a Solid-Phase Extraction column and HPLC with ultraviolet detection is here described and validated to analyse urine samples. Urine specimens were analysed to study F and E relation and ratio in athletes and healthy sedentary subjects. The F and E concentrations in random urine specimens were significantly higher in the post exercise versus pre exercise condition in cyclists (F: 136+/-93 nmol/l versus 67+/-50 nmol/l (p<0.001); E: 797+/-400 nmol/l versus 408+/-252 nmol/l (p<0.001)). The F/E ratio was 0.18+/-0.11 versus 0.16+/-0.07, respectively, and a significant difference was only demonstrated comparing sedentary (0.11+/-0.07) and cyclist individuals at rest (p<0.05).
