Identification of 2 hydroxy butyric acid in human amniotic fluid

, : Identification of 2 hydroxy butyric acid in human amniotic fluid. Clinica Chimica Acta 69(1): 127-130

Metabolic profiles of amniotic fluid were studied to define the normal composition and describe the correlation between abnormal patterns and disease. 2-Hydroxybutyric acid was identified in human amniotic fluid by combined gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. It was present in all 22 specimens examined of gestation 15-20 wk and 30-40 wk. The concentration of 2-hydroxybutyric acid in amniotic fluid was about 100 times less than that of the predominant acid, lactic acid.
