Low serum calcidiol has been associated with multiple comorbidities and mortality but no "safe" range has been found for the upper concentration. We aim to establish the upper threshold of serum calcidiol, beyond which there is an increased risk for...

No single factor can predict the occurrence of post total thyroidectomy (TT) hypocalcemia. This study was conducted to look at various factors usually implicated in post TT clinically significant hypocalcemia (CSH) and to develop a scoring system using a combination...

There is no effective treatment for systemic sclerosis and related fibrosing diseases. Recently the action of CYP11A1 on vitamin D(3) was shown to produce biologically active 20S-hydroxyvitamin D [20(OH)D(3)] and 20,23(OH)(2)D(3), 20,22(OH)(2)D(3), and 17,20,23(OH)(3)D(3). Because 20(OH)D(3) is noncalcemic (nontoxic) in...
