Serum folate levels were measured prospectively in 72 patients and six normal controls using the Lactobacillus casei microbiologic method and a commercially available sequential-binding radioassay kit method. Values between 0 and 14 ng/ml (0 and 31.78 nmol/l) (clinically significant range) obtained by the microbioassay and sequential-binding radioassay were analyzed statistically. The data suggest that comparable values are obtained by the two technics (Y = 0.9 X where Y = radioassay value… CONTINUE READING
