Abstract: Folate is essential for DNA synthesis and methylation and is implicated in tumour progression. Few studies have examined its role in ovarian cancer survival. Our objective was to determine relationships between intake of folate, related one-carbon nutrients, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in folate-metabolising genes and survival following ovarian cancer diagnosis.
