Abstract

The folate one carbon metabolism pathway is important to health maintenance and your imbalance is associated with pregnancy complications, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, bone fracture and cancer. This study aim to explore the relationship between folate one carbon metabolism pathway and three important outcomes in health: low birth weight, persistent HPV infection in men and risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. Will be used secondary data of PROCRIAR Study, a cohort of pregnant women followed up until the birth of their children, which will be explored the association between dietary intake of folate, vitamins B6 and B12 of the mother and low birth weight of her child. The HIM Study (HPV Infection in Men) who also is a cohort study with follow-up for 4 years of Brazilian men assessed every six months, including data from HPV infection in the penis, anus and oral mucosa. The association between dietary intake of folate, vitamins B6 and B12 and persistence of HPV infection in men will be investigated. The relation between folate, vitamins B6 and B12, homocysteine, hypertension and other risk factors for cardiovascular diseases will be explored taking into account interactions of polymorphisms of MTHFR and polyunsaturated fatty acids in the ISA-Capital Study. The last study has cross-sectional design, population-based. The three studies used food frequency questionnaire and/or 24 Hours Recall to measure dietary intake. Additionally, in the ISA-Capital Study blood biochemical parameters of folate, vitamins B6 and B12, homocysteine, polyunsaturated fatty acids and polymorphisms of MTHFR was measured. Demographic, socioeconomic, anthropometric and lifestyle variables, morbidity, family history of diseases, use of supplements and medications will be considered in the data analysis. All data were collected. (AU)
