Traduction en anglais : Incidence Rate of Neural Tube Defects in the administrational district Magdeburg.
Incidence Rate of Neural Tube Defects in the AdministraThe Magdeburg Register of birth defects includes information on the incidence rate of neural tube defects (NTD) in the city of Magdeburg since 1980, and in the Regierungsbezirk (administrational district) since 1987.
The average prevalence of NTD was 16.4 per 10,000 births in the city of Magdeburg, and 12 per 10,000 births in the surrounding counties.
Besides of this significant difference between the city and counties, there are conspicuous variations from one year to the next.
In 1987 the prevalence of NTD was about 27 per 10,000 births in the city of Magdeburg whereas the observed prevalence in the countryside was about 19 per 10,000 births.
Different eating habits and/or increased teratogenic influences in the city may be considered as causes.
In 1997 there was also a high rate of incidence of NTD in the city of Magdeburg - 16.4 per 10,000 births.
The incidence rate of NTD in the counties (about 10 per 10,000) births) is again lower than in the city.
Because of these incidence rates, we may assume that the examined population is insufficiently protected by folic acid in the preconceptional stage.
