Particulate matter (PM 2,5) in the air that are free radicals and enter through the respiratory station workers. Inability of antioxidants neutralize free radicals will increase MDA levels serum and cause oxidative stress. The aim of this study was to look at the differences in MDA levels serum and PM 2,5 influence on MDA levels serumon several main station attendant Surabaya. The design of this study was an analytic observational with cross-sectional study. The population in this study was bus station workers and administration workers, large of samples were 12 people in each group. Measurement of PM 2,5 with EPAM 5000 and MDA levels in serum using TBA test method. The results of t test analysis 2 free samples to show that there are differences in serum MDA levels were highly significant (ρ <0.05) in the bus station workers and administration workers. Multiple linear regression showed that there are significant PM 2,5 exposure and body mass index (ρ <0.05) on serum levels of MDA. The conclusion of this study is the PM 2,5 exposure can increased serum levels of MDA on several main bus station workers. Suggestions for health officials to control the station regularly and use a mask while on duty in the area of Surabaya station.
