The biochemical variations of serum from control and Wilsons disease (WD) rats were investigated using NMR-based metabolomics. Two groups can be discriminated according to the score plot of principle component analysis. The WD group shows increased levels of lactate, glycoprotein, glutamine, creatine, creatininearginine and decreased levels of glucose, trimethylamine-N-oxide, betaine, lipid and choline. The results may further our understanding of the disease.
