Aim: To identify, using capillary electrophoresis and chemometrics, early biomarkers in human amniotic fluid of large-for-gestational-age (LGA) infants. Materials & methods: Second trimester amniotic fluid samples, obtained from mothers undergoing age-related amniocentesis, were analyzed by capillary electrophoresis. Electropherogram data were aligned using correlation-optimized warping. A genetic algorithm using a Bayesian evaluation function and a leave-one-out cross-validation strategy for two birth outcomes: appropriate-for-gestational-age (AGA) versus LGA infants. Results: LGA (n = 23) was differentiated from AGA (n = 86) with a sensitivity of 100% and a specificity of 98% using only two wavelets. The first wavelet is associated with albumin and the second wavelet with an unknown small molecule. Conclusion: The approach developed herein allows LGA fetuses to be metabolically distinguished from AGA fetuses early in pregnancy and indicates that the birth of a LGA infant is already associated with an altered biochemical profile by the second trimester.
