Folic Acid Supplementation to Prevent Recurrent Neural Tube Defects: 4 Milligrams Is Too Much.
Last Updated: Jan 21, 2019

Some medical practices have been ingrained in custom for decades, long after "proof" that they were effective was established. It is necessary to periodically reevaluate these practices, as newer theories and research may challenge the evidence upon which they were based. An example ...

Developing a link between toxicants, claudins and neural tube defects.
Last Updated: Dec 11, 2018

The cause and effect relationship between environmental factors, including toxins (naturally occuring) and toxicants (man-made environmental contaminants), and neural tube defects is well-established. More recent evidence has demonstrated a requirement for the claudin family of tight ...

Folic acid and primary prevention of neural tube defects: A review.
Last Updated: Nov 21, 2018

With 4 mg folic acid daily, it may take 20 weeks to reach red-blood-cell folate levels between 1050 and 1340 nmol/L, optimal for reduction of the neural tube defect risk. Therefore, folic acid supplementation should be started 5-6 months before conception. The residual risk with ...

Hyperhomocysteinemia in men with a reproductive history of fetal neural tube defects: Three case reports and literature review.
Last Updated: Jan 28, 2019

Hereditary hyperhomocysteinemia results from a polymorphism in the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene that reduces folate metabolism. Mutations in the MTHFR gene are common in parents who have given birth to children with neural tube defects (NTDs). Most research has ...

Elevated H3K79 homocysteinylation causes abnormal gene expression during neural development and subsequent neural tube defects.
Last Updated: Dec 17, 2018

Neural tube defects (NTDs) are serious congenital malformations. Excessive maternal homocysteine (Hcy) increases the risk of NTDs, while its mechanism remains elusive. Here we report the role of histone homocysteinylation in neural tube closure (NTC). A total of 39 histone homocysteinylation ...

High risk for neural tube defects; the role of arsenic in drinking water and rice in Asia.
Last Updated: Dec 19, 2018

Neural tube defects (NTDs) affect >300,000 children annually worldwide. The incidence of NTDs in Northern India (7.7/1000), is tenfold higher than in the US (0.7/1000). Higher rates were previously reported in Northern China. The causes of these trends have not been elucidated. Arsenic ...
