Abstract

This study assessed biotin nutritional status longitudinally during pregnancy as judged by urinary excretion of biotin and biotin metabolites and by serum concentration of biotin. 3-Hydroxyisovaleric acid excretion was also assessed because increased excretion of that acid reflects decreased tissue activity of the biotin-dependent enzyme, methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase. Thirteen women provided untimed urine samples during both early and late pregnancy. Twelve nonpregnant women served as controls. Biotin and metabolites were determined by a combined HPLC/avidin-binding assay. 3- Hydroxyisovaleric acid was determined by gas chromatography/mass spectrophotometry. Significance of changes from early to late pregnancy was tested by paired t test; to compare nonpregnant controls with early and late pregnancy, ANOVA was used. During early pregnancy, biotin excretion was not significantly different than controls; however, 3-hydroxyisovaleric acid excretion was significantly increased relative to controls (P <0.0001) and was greater than the upper limit of normal in 9 of 13 women. From early to late pregnancy, biotin excretion decreased in 10 of 13 women (P <0.01); by late pregnancy, biotin excretion was less than normal in six women. During late pregnancy, 3-hydroxyisovaleric acid remained significantly increased relative to controls (P <0.0001). Serum concentrations of biotin were significantly greater than those of controls during early pregnancy (P <0.0001) and decreased in each woman from early to late pregnancy (P <0.0001). These data provide evidence that biotin status decreases during pregnancy.
