Our research group focuses on one-carbon metabolism (folate, vitamin B12) in health and disease. One topic deals with personalized medicine of the anti-folate Methotrexate (MTX) in Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Our aim is to individualize therapy by prediction of drug resistance and to apply therapeutic drug monitoring.
