Participants in both groups were evaluated for plasma homocysteine
levels, by collection into a heparinized tube and later transferred in ice blocks.
An article published in 2017 reported on the growing epidemiological evidence of a strong association between elevated homocysteine

Meta-analysis of cross-sectional studies have suggested that increased serum Homocysteine

Despite the accumulating evidence describing the effect of homocysteine
on CV function, few studies with conflicting results have examined CV effects of homocysteine
in rheumatoid arthritis.
Increasing plasma homocysteine
level is associated with elevating the risk of systemic vascular disease through enhancement of the adverse effects of risk factors such as hypertension, smoking, and lipid and lipoprotein metabolism, as well as acceleration of development of inflammation.
DNA methylation has long been recognized as an epigenetic silencing mechanism and plays important roles in many cellular processes, such as gene transcription, genomic imprinting, and X-chromosome inactivation.[sup] Homocysteine
is an amino acid produced in the liver after the metabolism of methionine.
"This is the first observational investigation stratified by sex to evaluate the correlation between sexual frequency and serum homocysteine
levels," wrote the researchers, in the (http://www.jsm.jsexmed.org/article/S1743-6095(17)31193-1/fulltext) study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
