1. The evaluation of serum homocysteine, folic acid, and vitamin B12 in patients complicated with preeclampsia Full Text available with Trip Pro

The evaluation of serum homocysteine, folic acid, and vitamin B12 in patients complicated with preeclampsia Increased plasma homocysteine may be associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as preeclampsia. The aim of this study was to determine the plasma homocysteine, serum folate, and vitamin B12 levels in preeclamptic pregnant women.This case-control study was conducted in 2016 in Ahwaz on 51 pregnant women with preeclampsia and 51 healthy pregnant women of the same gestational age, who (...) vitamin B12, but it was not statistically significant (p = 0.160; r = -0.200). Significant differences occurred in serum homocysteine and folate levels between the severe and non-severe subgroups (p < 0.001, p < 0.001).Women complicated with preeclampsia displayed higher maternal serum homocysteine and lower serum folate and vitamin B12. Further studies are needed to confirm if the prescription of folic acid and vitamin B12 in women with a deficiency of these vitamins could decrease the level of serum

4. Management issues for women with epilepsy--focus on pregnancy (an evidence-based review): III. Vitamin K, folic acid, blood levels, and breast-feeding (Abstract)

Management issues for women with epilepsy--focus on pregnancy (an evidence-based review): III. Vitamin K, folic acid, blood levels, and breast-feeding A committee assembled by the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) reassessed the evidence related to the care of women with epilepsy (WWE) during pregnancy, including preconceptional folic acid and prenatal vitamin K use and the clinical implications of placental and breast-milk transfer of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). The committee evaluated (...) the available evidence based on a structured literature review and classification of relevant articles. Preconceptional folic acid supplementation is possibly effective in preventing major congenital malformations in the newborns of WWE taking AEDs. There is inadequate evidence to determine if the newborns of WWE taking AEDs have a substantially increased risk of hemorrhagic complications. Primidone and levetiracetam probably transfer into breast milk in clinically important amounts. Valproate

or B12, folic acid plus both and placebo. Participants included in the review The participants had a mean age of 52 years (range of trial means 23 to 75 years). The median pre-treatment blood concentration of homocysteine was 11.8 micromoles/L and of folate was 11.6 nmol/L. Outcomes assessed in the review The main outcome assessed was the reduction in blood homocysteine in the treated group compared with the controls. How were decisions on the relevance of primary studies made? The authors do (...) of homocysteine, folate, vitamin B12 and B6 before and at the end of the treatment schedule. The proportional reductions in blood homocysteine in the treatment compared to the control groups was calculated. Methods of synthesis How were the studies combined? Multivariate regression analysis was used to determine the effects on homocysteine concentration of different doses of folic acid and the addition of vitamin B12 or B6. The proportionate reductions in blood homocysteine among treatment groups were

10. Effects of vitamin B12, folate, and vitamin B6 supplements in elderly people with normal serum vitamin concentrations. (Abstract)

Effects of vitamin B12, folate, and vitamin B6 supplements in elderly people with normal serum vitamin concentrations. In a prospective, multicentre, double-blind controlled study, the effect of an intramuscular vitamin supplement containing 1 mg vitamin B12, 1.1 mg folate, and 5 mg vitamin B6 on serum concentrations of methylmalonic acid (MMA), homocysteine (HCYS), 2-methylcitric acid (2-MCA), and cystathionine (CYSTA) was compared with that of placebo in 175 elderly subjects living at home (...) ; and 42% vs 25% for CYSTA. The response rate to vitamin supplements supports the notion that metabolic evidence of vitamin deficiency is common in the elderly, even in the presence of normal serum vitamin levels. Metabolite assays permit identification of elderly subjects who may benefit from vitamin supplements.
