Folate metabolism and in vivo radiofolate binding in normal, folate-deficient and folate-saturated subjects



Folate metabolism and in vivo radiofolate binding in normal, folate-deficient and folate-saturated subjects



South African Medical Journal 55(23): 924-928



A man 42 years old with irrelevant disorder had normal plasma and red cell folacin; he was given olic acid and ethyltetrahydrofolic acid. A woman 18 years old with megaloblastic anaemia and folacin deficiency post partum, and a man 50 years old who had folic acid 15 mg daily for 5 days up to 24 h before the trial, were given ethyltetrahydrofolic acid. Blood was taken at intervals to 72 h after the dose for the 1st man and to 24 h for the woman and 2nd man.
