OBJECTIVE: To identify metabolomic markers in maternal first-trimester serum for the detection of fetal congenital heart defects (CHD).
STUDY DESIGN: Mass spectrometry (Direct Injection (DI)/LC-MS/MS) and nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry (NMR) based metabolomic analyses were performed between 11 weeks and 13 weeks 6 days gestation on maternal serum. A total of 27 CHD cases and 59 controls were compared. There were no known or suspected chromosomal or syndromic abnormalities indicated.
RESULTS: A total of 174 metabolites were identified and quantified using the two analytical methods. There were 14 overlapping metabolites between platforms. We identified 123 metabolites that demonstrated significant differences on univariate analysis in maternal first-trimester serum in CHD versus normal cases. There was significant disturbance in acylcarnitine, sphingomyelin and other metabolite levels in CHD pregnancies. Predictive algorithms were developed for CHD detection. High sensitivity (95% CI) = 0.929 (0.92, 1.00) and specificity (95% CI) = 0.932 (0.78, 1.00) for CHD detection was achieved, AUC (95% CI) = 0.992 (0.973, 1.0).
CONCLUSION: In the first such report we demonstrated the feasibility of use of metabolomics developing biomarkers for the first-trimester prediction of CHD. Abnormal lipid metabolism appeared to be significant feature of CHD pregnancies.
