Periconceptional folic acid and multivitamin supplementation for the prevention of neural tube defects and other congenital abnormalities



Periconceptional folic acid and multivitamin supplementation for the prevention of neural tube defects and other congenital abnormalities



Birth Defects Research. Part A, Clinical and Molecular Teratology 85(4): 260-268



The pioneering studies of Smithells et al. showed the reduction of recurrent neural-tube defects (NTD) after periconceptional folic acid-containing multivitamin supplementation.
