Childhood Asthma risk greatly reduced when mothers having high vitamin D were given 4,400 IU daily – RCT 2019

To be published in 2019

Based on data from VDAART
Vitamin D supplementation in pregnancy, prenatal 25(OH)D levels, race, and subsequent asthma or recurrent wheeze in offspring: Secondary analyses from the Vitamin D Antenatal Asthma Reduction Trial.
J Allergy Clin Immunol. 2017;140(5):1423-9 e5.
Wolsk HM, Harshfield BJ, Laranjo N, Carey VJ, O'Connor G, Sandel M, et al.
This secondary analysis of the VDAART study is the first to show that the effect of prenatal supplementation with vitamin D on asthma and recurrent wheeze is modified by the initial maternal level of circulating vitamin D early in pregnancy. This work suggests that having a higher vitamin D level at the beginning of pregnancy and maintaining the level throughout pregnancy maximizes the preventive effect of vitamin D on asthma and recurrent wheeze in offspring.
