Résumé : Folate deficiency is assessed by serum and red blood cell folate measurements. Nevertheless, no consensus for the lower limit of serum folate reference values exists. We investigated the appropriate use of RBC-folate to detect folate deficiency and the relationship between serum and RBC-folate and with other parameters such as vitamin B12 and homocysteine in order to propose serum folate cut-off values.
