Studies assessing the association between vitamin D deficiency and preeclampsia (PE) have not reached a consensus. The study aimed to investigate the role of vitamin D in the occurrence of PE through its immune modulatory effects on Treg/Th17 cell ratio.

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have increasingly been shown to be important biological regulators involved in numerous diseases. Further, increasing evidence demonstrates that circulating lncRNAs can b...
Obesity has been associated with elevated leptinemia and vitamin D deficiency. To date, whether there is an association between vitamin D and leptin levels independent from adiposity remains uncertain...
Low circulating vitamin D levels have been associated with lower total testosterone. These epidemiological associations, if true, would have public health importance, since vitamin D deficiency is com...
Emerging evidence suggests a role for 7-dehydrocholesterol reductase (DHCR7) in the crosstalk between cholesterol and vitamin D. Our aim was to evaluate the impact of vitamin D-related polymorphisms a...
Early (EOP) and late onset (LOP) preeclampsia are two subtypes of preeclampsia. This study examines the effect of maternal omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E supplementation in a rat model of preeclamp...
The perinatal morbidity and mortality rates for Brazil are five to ten-fold higher than those reported for upper income countries. This study tests the likelihood that the joint administr...
Vitamin D plays a key role in the regulation of calcium metabolism and bone physiology and also presents immunomodulatory effects. In contrast to healthy individuals, macrophages and synov...
The objective of the study is to determine whether administration of vitamin C (1.5g/6 hours) in the first three days post-partum reduces the amount of extravascular lung water assessed by...
Vitamin D is important to maintain good health. Although it is found in foods and vitamins, many people still have low vitamin D levels. One purpose of this study is to describe vitamin ...
this study will be conducted to confirm the hypothesis of the previous studies and to list the high androgen levels as a precipitating factor for preeclampsia
The major circulating metabolite of VITAMIN D3. It is produced in the LIVER and is the best indicator of the body's vitamin D stores. It is effective in the treatment of RICKETS and OSTEOMALACIA, both in azotemic and non-azotemic patients. Calcifediol also has mineralizing properties.
A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN D in the diet, insufficient production of vitamin D in the skin, inadequate absorption of vitamin D from the diet, or abnormal conversion of vitamin D to its bioactive metabolites. It is manifested clinically as RICKETS in children and OSTEOMALACIA in adults. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1406)
OXIDOREDUCTASES which mediate vitamin K metabolism by converting inactive vitamin K 2,3-epoxide to active vitamin K.
A family of phylloquinones that contains a ring of 2-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone and an isoprenoid side chain. Members of this group of vitamin K 1 have only one double bond on the proximal isoprene unit. Rich sources of vitamin K 1 include green plants, algae, and photosynthetic bacteria. Vitamin K1 has antihemorrhagic and prothrombogenic activity.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
