Further Observations on the Relation between Iron and Folate Status in Pregnancy
TLDR
It is concluded that iron does not have a direct effect on folate status in pregnancy, that the association of iron deficiency and megaloblastic anaemia in pregnancy is the result of poor nutrition, and that there is no cause-and-effect relation between them. Expand
DIAGNOSIS OF COBALAMIN DEFICIENCY: THE OLD AND THE NEW
TLDR
The purpose of these comments is to examine critically the newer developments in diagnosis of Cbl deficiency and whether the new claims have indeed invalidated that which most of us have accepted as correct. Expand
Folic-acid deficiency in pregnancy. The pathogenesis of megaloblastic anaemia of pregnancy.
TLDR
It is likely that the same factors involved in folic acid deficiency during normal pregnancy are also responsible for the more severe condition in patients with megaloblastic anemia. Expand
The neuropsychiatry of megaloblastic anaemia.
TLDR
The neuropsychiatry of megaloblastic anaemia seen in this study of patients presenting to haematologists or general physicians contrasts with that reported previously, before haem atological techniques for separating the two deficiencies were introduced. Expand
Intestinal Absorption of Reduced Folate Compounds in Man
TLDR
Oral administration of folate compounds was followed by a rise in L. casei active factors in blood and this was demonstrated by the use of dihydropteroylglutamic acid labelled with tritium. Expand
Mean Cell Volume in a Working Population: the Effects of Age, Smoking, Alcohol and Oral Contraception
TLDR
There is a strong inverse association between MCV and red blood cell count, which may be part of a mechanism to ensure constant oxygen carrying capacity and is not seen in women not on oral contraceptives. Expand
Neutral-lipid storage disease: a new disorder of lipid metabolism.
TLDR
The size of the transient change observed was less than the normal diurnal variation in the incidence of fetal breathing, and clinical physiologists and obstetricians in several countries are beginning to use fetal breathing movements as an index of health. Expand
Studies on Secretion of Gastric Intrinsic Factor in Man
TLDR
The development of a simple and quantitative method for the assay of intrinsicfactor has enabled us to study the secretion of intrinsic factor in normal subjects and hospital patients and to observe the effect of various stimulants in promoting its production. Expand
