Anti-inflammatory effect of 1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) in human coronary arterial endothelial cells: Implication for the treatment of Kawasaki disease.

Abstract

Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute febrile vasculitis in childhood that is associated with inflammatory cytokines, in which the vascular inflammation results in damage to the coronary arteries. The active form of vitamin D, 1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) {1alpha,25-(OH)(2)D(3)} exhibits anti-inflammatory activities. In this study, we determined the mRNA and… (More)
