To test the hypothesis that high-dose vitamin D2 supplementation would result in a lower incidence of radiographically detectable bone disease, we randomly assigned 40 very low birth weight infants to a control group who received vitamin D2 in a dosage of 400 IU/day and 41 to an experimental group who received a dosage of 2000 IU/day. After 6 weeks,(More)
The effect of vitamin D supplementation on inorganic sulfate metabolism was examined in very low birth weight (less than 1,500 g) infants at biweekly intervals after birth until 6 weeks of postnatal age. Baseline serum sulfate concentrations were significantly higher in all infants (471 +/- 24 mumol/l, n = 80) than in adults (299 +/- 25 mumol/l, n = 17). In(More)
