Abstract

Zinc was found to be a normal constituent of amniotic fluid in groups of high risk pregnant women at the level of 0.12 ± 0.005 ppm. During the 13-19 weeks of early pregnancy zinc levels in amniotic fluid were not appreciably influenced by gestational age and were not correlated to changes in serum zinc. In high risk pregnant women, amniotic fluid represents a fairly constant but low pool of zinc during early pregnancy. Zinc levels in serum and amniotic fluid at early pregnancy were not altered in pregnant women having an increased risk of producing a child with a fetal anomaly.
