There are 3 clinical trials
Introduction: Vitamin D binding protein (VDBP) is a potential modulator of immune response and is associated with clinical progression of many diseases. Our aim is to assess influence of baseline 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels and VDBP single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), rs4588 (C>A) and rs7041 (G>T), on baseline clinical parameters and response to interferon based therapy in chronic Hepatitis C patients in Egypt. Methodology: Genotyping will be performed by RFLP (Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism) in treatment naïve Hepatitis C patients and healthy controls. Vitamin D levels will be assessed by ELISA. HCV RNA quantification will be performed by PCR to assess therapy outcome.

Vitamins A, D, and E play important roles in humans, such as vision function, immune function, bone metabolism, cell growth and differentiation and oxidation resistance. Deficiencies in these vitamins will result in a high prevalence of cardiovascular disease, infection, bone diseases, etc. Preterm infants, especially very low birth weight infants, are at risk of vitamin deficiency. Intravenous perfusion is the most common and widely used method to supply vitamins for the specific population in early life. However, the current dose of vitamin supplied by intravenous perfusion whether can meet the need of growth and development is not sure and the appropriate dose for preterm infants is still uncertain. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether current dose of fat-soluble vitamin supplementation is enough for very low birth weight infants, the safety of high dose of fat-soluble vitamin supplementation, and compare the differences of prevalence of common complications, such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia, patent ductus arteriosus, sepsis, anemia, and neural development between these two groups.
Association of rs4588 polymorphism in vitamin D receptor gene and rs10766197 polymorphism in the cytochrome P450 family 2 subfamily R member 1 gene with baseline level of vitamin D and change in vitamin D level after 4~6 weeks' supplementation.
Description: Change from baseline level of vitamin A, vitamin D, and vitamin E at 4~6 weeksMeasure: Vitamin levels Time: within 72 hours after birth, 4~6 weeks old
Description: The prevalence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia, patent ductus arteriosus, sepsis, anemia, intracranial hemorrhage, extrauterine growth retardation, etc.Measure: Complications Time: corrected age of 36 weeks
Description: White matter disease of the preterm infant, was semiquantitatively assessed from MRI at term-equivalent age based on an established scoring method.Measure: Neural development Time: corrected age of 40 weeks
Description: Association of rs4588 polymorphism in vitamin D receptor gene and rs10766197 polymorphism in the cytochrome P450 family 2 subfamily R member 1 gene with baseline level of vitamin D and change in vitamin D level after 4~6 weeks' supplementationMeasure: Gene polymorphism in vitamin deficiency preterm infants Time: within 72 hours after birth, 4~6 weeks old
This is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial. Based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, 400 eligible volunteers, who were 20-45 years, with 25-hydroxyvitamin D between 12.5-50 nmol/L and BMI between 18.5-28 kg/m2, were enrolled and randomly assigned to placebo or 2000 IU/d vitamin D3 arm, after taking placebo for one week. The study protocol was approved by the Ethics Committee of Huadong Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University, Shanghai and all participants provided written informed consents.In this 2-arm RCT we aimed to systematically investigate the effect of: 1. vitamin D3 supplement on serum 25(OH)D levels and the modifying factors; 2. genetic and non-genetic variants on vitamin D bioavailability; 3. vitamin D3 supplementation on metabolic profiles and circulating bone-turnover markers
In addition, we developed a genetic risk score (GRS) to evaluate the combined effect of three SNPs (rs4588, rs1790349 and rs2060793) from GC, NADSYN1/DHCR7 and CYP2R.
