Study IDST001403
Study TitleOntogeny related changes in the pediatric liver metabolome (part-II)
Study SummaryA major challenge in implementing personalized medicine in pediatrics is identifying appropriate drug dosages for children. The majority of drug dosing studies have been based on adult populations, often with modification of the dosing for children based on size and weight. However, the growth and development experienced by children between birth and adulthood represents a dynamically changing biological system, with implications for effective drug dosing, efficacy as well as potential drug toxicity. The purpose of this study was to apply a metabolomics approach to gain preliminary insights into the ontogeny of liver function from newborn to adolescent.

Sample Preparation:

Sampleprep ID:SP001485
Sampleprep Summary:Given that the metabolomic platform changed between the first analysis and the sample set containing the replication samples, the second experiment examined the entire set of 98 samples. The same 48 samples previously processed in Experiment 1 and designated as “batch 1” above were re-analyzed on the new platform, with the results designated “batch 2”. The replication samples from Erasmus/Sophia Children’s Hospital and additional samples from CMH (N=50) are designated as “batch 3”. Following the sample extraction, the resulting extract was analyzed using a Waters ACQUITY ultra-performance liquid chromatography (UPLC) and a Thermo Scientific Q-Exactive high resolution/accurate mass spectrometer interfaced with a heated electrospray ionization (HESI-II) source and Orbitrap mass analyzer operated at 35,000 mass resolution (Evans et al., 2014). Four methods were utilized: two separate reverse phase (RP)/UPLC-MS/MS methods with positive ion mode electrospray ionization (ESI), RP/UPLC-MS/MS with negative ion mode ESI, and HILIC/UPLC-MS/MS with negative ion mode ESI. The MS analysis alternated between MS and data-dependent MSn scans using dynamic exclusion. The scan range varied slightly between methods but covered 70-1000 m/z. The final experiment 2 metabolomic dataset comprised a total of 971 biochemicals, 779 compounds of known identity (named biochemicals) and 192 compounds of unknown structural identity.
