In this work, untargeted NMR metabonomics was employed to evaluate the effects of pregnancy on the metabolite composition of maternal urine, thus establishing a control excretory trajectory for healthy pregnancies. Urine was collected for independent groups of healthy non-pregnant and pregnant women (in 1(st), 2(nd), 3(rd) trimesters) and multivariate analysis performed on the corresponding NMR spectra. Models were validated through Monte Carlo Cross Validation and permutation tests and metabolite correlations measured through Statistical Total Correlation Spectroscopy. The levels of 21 metabolites were found to change significantly throughout pregnancy, with variations observed for the first time to our knowledge for choline, creatinine, 4-deoxyerythronic acid, 4-deoxythreonic acid, furoylglycine, guanidoacetate, 3-hydroxybutyrate and lactate. Results confirmed increased aminoaciduria across pregnancy and suggested a) a particular involvement of isoleucine and threonine in lipid oxidation/ketone body synthesis, b) a relation of excreted choline, taurine and guanidoacetate to methionine metabolism and urea cycle regulation and c) a possible relationship of furoylglycine and creatinine to pregnancy, based on a tandem study of non-fasting confounding effects. Results demonstrate the usefulness of untargeted metabonomics in finding biomarker metabolic signatures for healthy pregnancies, against which disease-related deviations may be confronted in future studies, as a base for improved diagnostics and prediction.
