Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Sitrin, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This monograph reviews and evaluates recent research data on folate metabolism and requirements, the role of folate in chronic diseases, and the therapeutic uses of folates and antifolates.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide scientists and clinical practitioners with an evaluation of recent research data concerning normal folate absorption and metabolism; the roles of folate in normal metabolic processes and alterations that occur with physiologic stresses such as pregnancy and lactation; methods for assessment of folate status and the consequences of folate deficiency; interactions between folate and other nutrients, drugs, and alcohol; folate status and chronic diseases; and therapeutic uses of folates and antifolates. New information indicating that folate status may be an important risk factor for diseases such as cardiovascular disorders, neural tube defects, and cancer makes this monograph a timely addition to the medical literature.
Audience: This monograph is directed principally toward nutrition scientists and biochemists, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students interested in basic or clinical research in folate metabolism and nutrition. The individual chapters generally focus on recent advances that would be of most interest to the research community. Though many of the chapters deal with clinical topics, they are written from a research perspective and are not geared toward providing the practical information that would be sought by most clinical practitioners.
Features: The appearance of the book is very standard. As is common with multiauthored books, the individual chapters vary somewhat with respect to the quantity and currency of references and the use of illustrations. In general, the chapters are extensively referenced with many citations from the 1990s. Most chapters contain black-and-white illustrations, and the detailed depictions of metabolic pathways and interrelationships are most useful. The table of contents and index are adequate.
Assessment: This monograph provides a comprehensive review of recent research advances in folate metabolism and nutrition in health and disease. Particular emphasis is placed on emerging research areas, such as folate status and cardiovascular disease, neural tube defects, and cancer. The authors are distinguished basic and clinical scientists from the U.S. and Europe who have personally contributed much to this field. This book is a welcome and much needed contribution to the research community interested in folate.
Journal of the American College of Nutrition
The quality of this text is exceptional. The writing is very consistent throughout...Each author has presented areas of research remaining unresolved and in need of new efforts. The materials enclosed in this text serve the researcher and teacher alike... "...provides an in—depth review of new areas of clinical interest related to folate metabolism and focuses the reader's attention on important areas of research needing to be resolved. The book is recommended for everyone who enjoys reading science at its best.
Journal of the American Dietetic Association
...reading Folate in Health and Disease is a beneficial and time—efficient way for dietetics professionals to be brought up to speed about this topic. The book reviews the basic biochemical pathways and physiologic functions of folate and provides an overview of the role of folate in neural tube defects, cancer, and cardiovascular disease...much has happened in recent years concerning diagnostic tests for folate deficiency and these are appropriately covered. The editor and contributing authors are outstanding researchers in their respective areas, and each chapter presents a scientific approach with in—depth information that is fully referenced.

Begins a series covering new thinking and findings about the biochemical function and relevance to health of both macronutrients and micronutrients. V.1 considers the basis of the vitamin folic acid, also known as B-12, from such perspectives as chemistry and metabolism, deficiency, hyperhomocysteinemia, dietary recommendations, lactation, bioavailability, the status of the US population, and cancer.
