Expert Panel: Identifying Research Needs for Assessing Safe Use of High Intakes of Folic Acid (Day 2)

The National Toxicology Program (NTP) and Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) are convening an expert panel to identify research needs related to the safe use of high intakes of folic acid based on consideration of the state of the science. The expert panel meeting will bring together experts from multiple disciplines including, but not limited to, epidemiology, nutrition, medicine, and toxicology. In preparation for this evaluation, screening of the literature was undertaken to identify potential adverse health effects for which further research might be warranted. A literature review document is being prepared on four health outcome areas using systematic review methodology: (1) cancer, (2) cognition in conjunction with vitamin B12, (3) hypersensitivity-related outcomes, and (4) endocrine and metabolic outcomes. The literature review document should be available by April 6, 2015, and will be posted to http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/730864. A document describing the approach for conducting the literature evaluation has also been prepared and is posted on the NTP Website (http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/ntp/ohat/folicacid/ntpfolicacid_approach_508.pdf). This document describing the approach includes information on the dose levels of folic acid being considered for the evaluation.For more information go to http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/730864Air date: 5/12/2015 8:00:00 AM
