The significance of the relationship between serum levels of cobalamin and MCHC during pregnancy
Cobalamin concentration and mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) were found to have highly significant inverse correlation with the weeks of pregnancy (respectively -.278 P < 0.0001 and .342 P < 0.00001) in 205 pregnant women. Among all haematometric parameters cobalamin concentrations during pregnancy only correlates with MCHC (P < .01). This datum seems to indicate an influence of B12 on erythropoiesis which adequate the concentration of haemoglobin to circulatory modifications of pregnant women.
