Folic Acid Supplementation Reduced Depression Score in Young Japanese Women with Depression-susceptible Genetic Polymorphisms

Background: Observational studies have shown that low folate status induces depression. Here we studied the effects of folic acid supplementation on depression scores of Japanese women with depression-susceptible gene polymorphisms: methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), serotonin transporter (5-HTT), and dopamine D4 receptor (DRD4).

A Reintegration Program for Elderly Prisoners Reduces Reoffending
