Fetal plasma amino acid concentrations were obtained by cordocentesis at midgestation in 11 normal (appropriate for gestational age) fetuses and at late gestation in 12 small-for-gestational-age fetuses, and at cesarean section in 14 normal term infants. In normal fetuses total molar amino acid concentrations and fetal/maternal total molar concentration ratios did not change significantly between the second and third trimesters. Fetal and maternal concentrations of most amino acids were… CONTINUE READING
