The epidemiology of neural tube defects: a review of dietary intake and related factors as etiologic agents


, : The epidemiology of neural tube defects: a review of dietary intake and related factors as etiologic agents. American Journal of Epidemiology 133(6): 526-540

Although efforts are currently under way to clarify the role of dietary intake and/or supplement use in the development of neural tube defects in man, clear associations have not yet been made. Most studies have examined dietary intake/supplements immediately prior to or shortly after conception. However, it is possible that a state of chronic malnutrition contributes to these defects rather than an acute deficiency near the time of conception.

BACKGROUND: Periconceptional intake of nutrients in addition to folic acid may contribute to neural tube defect (NTD) etiologies; a likely candidate is myo-inositol. We investigated whether maternal periconceptional dietary intake of myo-inositol...

This case-control study examined the NTD risk associated with choline and betaine in...

Similar to folic acid, choline is involved in one-carbon metabolism for methylat...
