Authors: Fahmawi Y, Campos Y, Khushman M, Alkharabsheh O, Manne A, Zubair H, Haleema S, Polski J, Bessette S Abstract Pseudo-thrombotic microangiopathy (pseudo-TMA) is a recognized, yet uncommon, clinical presentation of vitamin B12 deficiency. Patients with pseudo-TMA present with microangiopathic hemolytic anemia (MAHA), thrombocytopenia and schistocytes. They are often misdiagnosed as thrombotic thrombocytopenia purpura (TTP) and receive unnecessary therapy. Here, we report a case of a 60-year-old male who presented with thrombocytopenia and normocytic normochromic anemia. Anemia work-up was remarkable for severe B12 deficiency (

Publication date: Available online 4 November 2019Source: Journal of Food EngineeringAuthor(s): Seema R. Bajaj, Rekha S. SinghalAbstractFortification has been universally recommended to control increasing prevalence of deficiency of vitamin B12. Liquid food systems could be a suitable medium for this fortification. The present work was undertaken to evaluate the effect of pH and storage temperature on the kinetic behavior of vitamin B12 degradation during storage in model aqueous systems at pH 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and two model fruit juices. Vitamin B12 degraded rapidly at pH 2 with half life (t1/2) of 8 days at 37 °C. Th...

This study evaluated the anemia, hematinic deficiencies, hyperhomocysteinemia, and serum gastric parietal cell antibody (GPCA) positivity in 884 BMS patients.MethodsThe blood hemoglobin (Hb) and serum iron, vitamin B12, folic acid, homocysteine, GPCA levels in 884 BMS patients were measured and compared with the corresponding levels in 442 age- and sex-matched healthy control subjects.ResultsWe found that 175 (19.8%), 143 (16.2%), 42 (4.8%), 20 (2.3%), 170 (19.2%), and 109 (12.3%) BMS patients had blood Hb, serum iron, vitamin B12, and folic acid deficiencies, hyperhomocysteinemia, and serum GPCA positivity, respectively. ...

In Reply We thank Arendt and colleagues and Stall and colleagues for their letters on our study. We agree that diagnosing vitamin B12 deficiency can be challenging in elderly patients. To mitigate this, we used a threshold of 221 pmol/L, the least restrictive value for B12 deficiency according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. It is also in keeping with Canadian practice guidelines on B12 deficiency, which suggest that symptoms of deficiency are rare with a serum B12 221 pmol/L or greater. We also believe that using methylmalonic acid and homocysteine levels as surrogates for deficiency does not refl...

Vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms can develop if a person lacks the vitamin in their diet. Those most at risk of being deficient are vegans and vegetarians as the best source of the vitamin are found in foods of an animal origin.

Abstract Psoriasis is caused by a complex interplay among the immune system, genetic background, autoantigens, and environmental factors. Recent studies have demonstrated that patients with psoriasis have a significantly higher serum homocysteine (Hcy) level and a higher prevalence of hyperhomocysteinaemia (HHcy). Insufficiency of folic acid and vitamin B12 can be a cause of HHcy in psoriasis. Hcy may promote the immuno-inflammatory process in the pathogenesis of psoriasis by activating Th1 and Th17 cells and neutrophils, while suppressing regulatory T cells Moreover, Hcy can drive the immuno-inflammatory process ...
