Elevated levels of homocysteine (Hcy) have been identified as independent risk identifiers for cardiovascular disease, cerebrovascular disease as well as for all-cause mortality. Despite the potential importance of these observations, a definitive pathological role for Hcy or its various metabolites in any of these conditions has not been established. Particularly deficient is a description of the effects of elevated levels of homocysteine on immune function. Folic acid and vitamin B12… CONTINUE READING
