Protocol B: Plasma folate increased significantly at four weeks in those receiving folinic acid (P = 0.0001) but tHcy was not significantly different between groups (P = 0.92).

Concomitant folate supplementation with either folic or folinic acid decreases the plasma homocysteine level and consequently protects against potential cardiovascular risks.

Based on pharmacokinetics at higher doses, steady-state total plasma reduced folate concentrations of 1 microM would be expected from the administration of leucovorin 50 mg/m2 by 24 h infusion.

ConclusionsThe expression level of FPGS, GGH and ABCC1 in CRC tissues could predict the reduced folate level after LV administration, and these factors may determine the efficacy of LV treatment.
