    Background: Periconceptional folic acid reduces neural tube defect (NTD) risk. Red blood cell folate concentration is inversely associated with NTD risk. In many countries there is a lack of information on NTD rates. Red cell folate status in women of childbearing age may be a surrogate for NTD...

    Methotrexate (MTX) is an effective immunosuppressive drug for moderate-to-severe psoriasis. In an open prospective study patients with chronic plaque psoriasis (n = 25, aged 28-79 yr) were treated with oral methotrexate using an individualized dose guided by plasma concentrations and with folic...

    Background: Folate deficiency is rare in western countries and therefore blood tests for folate level have limited indications. One such indication is red cell macrocytosis, however it is unclear if the association of macrocytosis with folate deficiency is robust enough to serve as a risk...

  • Folic Acid.  // AHFS Consumer Medication Information;Oct2017, p1 

    Folic acid is used to treat or prevent folic acid deficiency. It is a B-complex vitamin needed by the body to manufacture red blood cells. A deficiency of this vitamin causes certain types of anemia (low red blood cell count).

  • A common insertion/deletion polymorphism of the thymidylate synthase (TYMS) gene is a determinant of red blood cell folate and homocysteine concentrations. Kealey, Carmel; Brown, Karen; Woodside, Jayne; Young, Ian; Murray, Liam; Boreham, Colin; McNulty, Helene; Strain, J.; McPartlin, Joseph; Scott, John; Whitehead, Alexander // Human Genetics;Apr2005, Vol. 116 Issue 5, p347 

    Substantial evidence suggests that a low folate/high homocysteine phenotype is pathogenic. We analyzed the impact of the thymidylate synthase (TYMS) 3'UTR ins/del polymorphism on folate and homocysteine levels and assessed the relationship between theTYMS3'UTR ins/del polymorphism and key...

M. // PLoS ONE;10/22/2015, Vol. 10 Issue 10, p1 

    We aimed to investigate whether periconceptional maternal folate status affects human embryonic cerebellar size and growth trajectories. In a prospective periconceptional cohort participants filled out questionnaires and received weekly transvaginal 3D-ultrasounds between 7+0 and 12+6 weeks...
