Figure 2 : Decrease in Apo A-II dimer at 16-22 weeks in GDM cases relative to controls by mass spectrometry.


(A) Spectra are shown for a single representative GDM patient and age-matched control at gestational age range 16-22 weeks for Apo A-II dimer, 17.4kDa. (B) Quantification of median spectral intensities by SELDITOF mass spectrometry for n=4-5 GDM subjects and n=8
age-matched controls at each gestational age for Apo A-II dimer. Error bars denote 95% confidence intervals.
