    Summary. Folates are involved in the cerebral metabolism of cobalamine, methionine, L-tyrosine and acetylcholine. Remarkably CSF-folate levels are 3 to 4 times higher than blood-folate levels. To reach the brain, folates are actively transported by choroid plexus (CP) as well as vitamins B6,...

    The article discusses the claim that cerebral folate deficiency causes autism. Any neuropsychiatric conditioned associated with low cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is defined as cerebral folate deficiency. A study shows that neuropsychiatric disorders brought by cerebral folate deficiency results an...

    Background Increased plasma homocystein (Hcy) is reported to be an independent risk factor for neurodegenerative diseases [1]. Hcy may be involved in the potentiation of neuro-toxic and vasculopathic processes [2,3], leading to β Amyloid (Aβ) and Tau protein accumulation in brains of...

    We and other investigators have postulated deterioration of essential choroid plexus (CP) functions in some elderly and especially Alzheimer's disease patients based on apparent anatomical, histological and pathological changes in CP. We have termed this putative phenomenon CP failure. By...

    Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate if multiple sclerosis (MS) is associated with vitamin B[sub 12] (cobalamin) deficiency. Methods: We measured serum vitamin B[sub 12], plasma folate, serum methylmalonic acid (MMA), plasma homocysteine (tHcy) and also cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) MMA...

    To investigate the relationship between folate status and dietary folate intake in the Taiwanese elderly, we analyzed plasma folate levels and dietary folate intake in 725 males and 705 females aged 65-90 years, sampled from the Elderly Nutrition and Health Survey in Taiwan (1999-2000) (Elderly...
