Prevention of childhood asthma with vitamin D - importance of genes involved in vitamin D metabolism

​The project

At COPSAC, we have recently shown that supplementation with a high dose of vitamin D in pregnancy can reduce the child's risk of developing recurrent wheeze and asthma. However, there is great individual difference in the preventive effect of this supplement among the mothers and their children from the COPSAC2010 mother-child cohort participating in the study.
