  1. Plasma Homocyst (e) ine concentrations in pregnant and nonpregnant women with controlled folate intake.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To assess the effects of folate intake and pregnancy on plasma total homocyst (e) ine concentrations in women during the second trimester of pregnancy compared with young, healthy nonpregnant women.

    Methods 

    The diet provided either 450 or 850 mug of folate per day.

    These levels are approximately the current (400 mug/day) and previous (800 mug/day) Recommended Dietary Allowances for folate in pregnant women.

    Folate was provided as both food folate (120 mug/day) and supplemental folic acid (either 330 or 730 mug/day) for a period of 12 weeks.

    Plasma homocyst (e) ine (sum of free and protein-bound homocysteine), serum folate, and erythrocyte folate concentrations were determined weekly.

    Results 

    Homocyst (e) ine concentrations were lower in pregnant women during the second trimester of normal pregnancy than in nonpregnant controls, independent of dietary folate intake.

    The overall mean (± standard deviation) homocyst (e) ine concentration of the pregnant subjects (5.4 ± 1.4 mumol/L) was significantly lower than that observed in the nonpregnant control group (8.7 ± 1.7 mumol/L) (P<. 0001).

    This difference in homocyst (e) ine concentrations remained constant throughout the 12 weeks of the investigation.

    Conclusion 

    The folate intakes in this investigation were adequate to maintain constant homocyst (e) ine concentrations in pregnant and nonpregnant women. (...)
