BACKGROUND:  Chorioamnionitis (CA) is associated with a high risk for the development of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) after preterm birth, but mechanisms that increase susceptibility for BPD and strategies to prevent BPD are uncertain. As a model of CA, antenatal intra-amniotic (IA) endotoxin (ETX) exposure alters placental structure, causes fetal growth restriction, increases perinatal mortality, and causes sustained cardiorespiratory abnormalities throughout infancy. Vitamin D (Vit D) has been shown to have both anti-inflammatory and proangiogenic properties...

Asthma - a prolonged respiratory disease related with hyper-responsiveness and increased inflammation of airways; affects millions peoples worldwide. Vitamin D possess anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory activities. Its deficiency (the level less than 20 ng/mL in the serum) is found to be related to occurrence of pulmonary diseases including bacterial and viral infections and asthma. Some studies indicate that low levels of vitamin D in the serum are related to reduced lung function and increased airway inflammation as well as overall poor results in asthmatic patients...

Vitamin D deficiency is especially prevalent in pregnant women and children. Our recent study demonstrated that vitamin D deficiency in early life disturbed testicular development. This study investigated the effects of vitamin D deficiency in early life on prostatic hyperplasia in middle-aged mice. In control group, dams and their male pups were fed with standard-chow diets. In VDD group, dams were fed with vitamin D deficient (VDD) diets throughout pregnancy and lactation. After weaning, male pups continued to be fed with VDD diets...

Introduction: Maternal vitamin D status in pregnancy has been linked to many health outcomes in mother and offspring. A wealth of observational studies have reported on both obstetric outcomes and complications, including pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes, mode and timing of delivery. Many foetal and childhood outcomes are also linked to vitamin D status, including measures of foetal size, body composition and skeletal mineralization, in addition to later childhood outcomes, such as asthma...

Prenatal vitamin D deficiency and prenatal depression are both separately associated with adverse perinatal outcomes; however, to our knowledge no studies have investigated the effects of having both risk factors. Our objective was to determine to what extent vitamin D deficiency predicts adverse perinatal outcomes and whether elevated depressive symptoms in pregnancy places women at additional increased risk. This study was a secondary data analysis of prospective data collected from a cohort of pregnant women (N = 101) in an obstetric clinic of a large medical center...

Whether the maternal vitamin D deficiency is associated with infant birth weight is still an argument. Here, we performed a nested case-control study (545 women who subsequently delivered infant with macrosomia and 1090 controls) to evaluate the association of the maternal serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] concentrations with risk of macrosomia. We measured the serum 25(OH)D concentrations by enzyme immunoassays. Logistic regression analysis, receiver-operator characteristic curve analysis and graphical nomogram were used for the statistical analyses...
