Description of CME Course

Biological activity of vitamin D and its metabolites include, among other properties, potent antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects in vitro. In animal models, administration of vitamin D metabolites attenuates a variety of acute organ dysfunction, including acute lung injury. Observational data from patient cohorts support the potential therapeutic application of these findings. Specifically, lower circulating levels of vitamin D metabolites are independently associated with worse outcomes in patients with acute illness, including patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
