Localised folate deficiency has been implicated in colonic carcinogenesis and supplementation has been proposed for certain populations at risk. However, identifying those groups that may benefit is difficult as the relation between blood folate and gut epithelial cell values is unknown. The aim of this study was to define this relation. Epithelial cells… CONTINUE READING
