Folic acid in coeliac disease. A study of its administration in twenty-two cases

, : Folic acid in coeliac disease. A study of its administration in twenty-two cases. Arch. Dis. Childhood. 23: 220-224

In 22 cases with steatorrhoea confirmed by analysis of the faeces, a dose of 10 or 20 mg. folic acid was given daily for 1 or 2 months in addition to other treatment which included low-fat and high-protein diet with liver preparations and vitamins. No clear evidence was obtained of any beneficial effect of folic aeid on the clinical condition, gain in weight, or character of the faeces. A. M.

We hypothesized that manipulation during organ harvesting initiated an inflammatory response via muscularis macrophages and that this cascade was amplified duri...
