Polymorphisms in genes involved in folate metabolism modify the association of dietary and circulating folate and vitamin B-6 with cervical neoplasia

submitted by: LUCIANA TOMITA
High folate intake has been suggested as an important factor for cancer prevention; however, previous studies on the relationship between folate intake, serum folate and plasma homocysteine are controversial. We conducted a hospital-based, case-control study in Brazil investigating associations between dietary and circulating vitamins B-6, B-12 and folate, homocysteine, genotypes of folate-metabolizing enzyme methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase [MTHFR C677T, A1298C],...
