Project Brief :

Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin that has a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system. Up to 74% of women are reported deficient during the antenatal period in some populations. Supplementation with Iron and Folate have been part of a worldwide strategy targeting anaemia and neural tube defects for many years. However, Vitamin B12 deficiency has received much less attention. Trials on the given subject are limited and those available have either used an ineffective dose or are for a short duration.

This study aims to compare two different doses (a treatment dose in comparison with a dose

known to just prevent further deficiency) of maternal Vitamin B12 supplementation in terms of their effectiveness in removing infant B12 deficiency and neurodevelopment.
