This is a randomized, two-arm, placebo-controlled phase-2 trial to determine whether the daily intake of 1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2D3], improves beta cell function in patients with recently diagnosed type 1 diabetes. The treatment consists of the daily oral administration of 0.25 µg 1,25(OH)2D3 or placebo for 9 months and an equal follow-up time without supplementation. Fasting, peak and AUC C-peptide concentrations during a 2-hour mixed meal tolerance test are measured at the beginning of the study, as well as at the end of the treatment and the follow-up period in month 9 and 18. The null hypothesis is that there is no difference between 1,25(OH)2D3 treated subjects and the placebo group in the AUC C-peptide at month 18.

Reduction in vitamin D levels has been reported in subjects with recent onset type 1 diabetes. Several studies suggest that vitamin D supplementation in early childhood decreases the risk ...
To examine the effects of two types of active vitamin D (calcitriol and doxercalciferol) and two phosphate binders (sevelamer and calcium carbonate) on the bone disease and blood tests of ...
Vitamin D is a natural nutrient in normal daily diet. It can also be made in the skin after exposure to sunlight and is essential for maintaining normal calcium balance. One past study h...
Diabetic kidney disease (nephropathy) develops in nearly 40% of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Diabetic nephropathy is caused by damage to the small blood vessels in the kidneys d...
Immunoglobulin A (IgA) nephropathy is the most common type of primary glomerulonephritis in the world. A wealth of literature suggests that vitamin D and its analogs have profound effects ...
Inverse associations between vitamin D status and risk of type 2 diabetes observed in epidemiological studies could be biased by confounding and reverse causality. We investigated the prospective asso...
The arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase (ALOX5) pathway has been implicated in chronic inflammatory disease which may be influenced by vitamin D due to vitamin D response elements (VDRE). We investigated an A...
To evaluate the effects of 1,25 dihydroxy vitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3) on the content of triglyceride (TG), as well as on the gene and protein expressions of adiponectin receptor 2 (AdipoR2), p38 mitogen-...
Vitamin D signaling is involved in infectious and non-infectious liver diseases, yet the natural vitamin D metabolites are suboptimal therapeutic agents. In the present study, we therefore aimed to ex...

A plant species of the genus SOLANUM, family SOLANACEAE that causes CALCINOSIS in grazing livestock due to high levels of 1a,25-dihydroxy vitamin D3 (CALCITRIOL).
Proteins, usually found in the cytoplasm, that specifically bind calcitriol, migrate to the nucleus, and regulate transcription of specific segments of DNA with the participation of D receptor interacting proteins (called DRIP). Vitamin D is converted in the liver and kidney to calcitriol and ultimately acts through these receptors.
A DNA sequence that is found in the promoter region of vitamin D regulated genes. Vitamin D receptor (RECEPTOR, CALCITRIOL) binds to and regulates the activity of genes containing this element.
The physiologically active form of vitamin D. It is formed primarily in the kidney by enzymatic hydroxylation of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (CALCIFEDIOL). Its production is stimulated by low blood calcium levels and parathyroid hormone. Calcitriol increases intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and in concert with parathyroid hormone increases bone resorption.
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
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...
