Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


Metabolomics is a promising tool for searching out new biomarkers and the development of hypotheses in nutrition research. This chapter will describe the design of human dietary intervention studies where samples are collected for metabolomics analyses as well as the analytical issues and data interpretation. Design considerations for metabolomic studies include the overall structure of the study as well as the control group, sample collection and handling, sample storage, sample analysis, quality control measures and plans for data analyses. Suggestions for designing feasible and ethical dietary studies are given.
