[Folic acid protects against neural tube defects. But how many women of reproductive age have been informed about this fact?].


The involvement of folic acid in the aetiology of neural tube defects (NTDs) has been discussed for decades. Both observational and controlled intervention trials have shown periconceptional folic acid supplementation (PFAS) to significantly reduce the incidence both of first-time and recurrent NTDs.
