Metabolomics is a relatively new science based on the quantitative analysis of metabolites. The metabolic profile in human biological fluid is the result of the interaction between the human genome and the micro/macro environment.
Despite it still being considered a pioneering science, metabolomics appears to be a promising tool in perinatal studies.
This report aims to attract reviews and clinical trials to fully investigate the clinical applications of the metabolomics approach in the diagnosis and early identification of disease.
