Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag

Deficiencies of vitamin B12 and folate are common in many populations and are associated with development. In this project we will follow up children who participated in a randomized-placebo controlled trial from 2010 to 2011. In the original trial we enrolled 1000 children, 6 to 30 months of age and measured the effect of folic acid and/or vitamin B12 supplementation for 6 months on the incidence of infections and growth. In a subgroup of 422 children, neurodevelopment was also assessed. In an extension of this project we will measure cognitive functioning and neurodevelopment in as many as possible of the original sample from around 3 years after the children completed the first phase. In the 422 children who participated in the neurodevelopmental assessment in the first phase we found that children who were given vitamin B12 and folic acid had substantially and significantly higher scores on cognitive tests. The objective of this follow up is to measure if this effect persists.Deficiencies of vitamin B12 and folate are common in many populations and are associated with development.
