This pilot study investigated the possibility that metabolomic differences exist in second trimester of women delivering at term (≥37 weeks, n = 216) and preterm (≤35 weeks, n = 11). For this retrospective study, biobanked AF samples underwent near-infrared (NIR) spectral analysis using wavelengths from 700 to 1050 nm. Spectral data was compressed then(More)
OBJECTIVE We explored the possibility that perturbations in amniotic fluid glucose, insulin, and insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 1(IGFBP1) and/or metabolic acids exist before routine screening for GDM. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We selected consenting mother-infant pairs (n = 408) who met our inclusion criteria (singleton pregnancy, no genetic(More)
