TLDR
This study confirmed the influence of sex, age and height on 25( OH)D increase and found that pigment genes provided a better relation to UVB-induced 25(OH) D increase compared to the actual measured skin pigmentation.
Factors that influence the cutaneous synthesis and dietary sources of vitamin D.
Vitamin D production after UVB exposure depends on baseline vitamin D and total cholesterol but not on skin pigmentation.
TLDR
The increase in 25(OH)D level after UVB exposure was negatively correlated with baseline 25( OH)Dlevel and positively correlated with Baseline total cholesterol level, but no significant correlations were found with constitutive or facultative skin pigmentation.
Racial pigmentation and the cutaneous synthesis of vitamin D.
TLDR
It is concluded that while racial pigmentation has a photoprotective effect, it does not prevent the generation of normal levels of active vitamin D metabolites.
Vitamin D production and induction of cutaneous malignant melanoma
TLDR
The relationships between daily or seasonal UV radiation doses and vitamin D status, dietary vitamin D intake and CMM incidence rates at different geographical latitudes were investigated and the relative roles of UVA and UVB in CMM induction are discussed.
Vitamin D metabolism
TLDR
It has been found that human skin irradiated with ultraviolet B also is able to produce calcitriol in substantial amounts and has photoprotective effects and can reduce UV‐induced deoxyribonucleic acid damage.
Environmental factors that influence the cutaneous production of vitamin D.

TLDR
It is now recognized that vitamin D insufficiency and vitamin D deficiency are common in elderly people, especially in those who are infirm and not exposed to sunlight or who live at latitudes that do not provide them with sunlight-mediated cholecalciferol during the winter months.
Small doses from artificial UV sources elucidate the photo-production of vitamin D.

To clarify the relation between UV exposure and vitamin D status, 201 volunteers wore personal electronic UV dosimeters during daylight hours, to record their UV exposure over a 10 week period when
2 Photobiology of Vitamin D
TLDR
One area which has shown more progress during the past decade is the use of simulated sunlamp to improve vitamin D production in patients with intestinal malabsorption and elderly who were infirmed or living in northern latitude.

Regulation of cutaneous previtamin D3 photosynthesis in man: skin pigment is not an essential regulator.
TLDR
Increases either in skin melanin concentration or in latitude necessitated increases in the exposure time to simulated solar ultraviolet radiation required to maximize the formation, but not the total content, of previtamin D3.
Photosynthesis of previtamin D3 in human skin and the physiologic consequences.
TLDR
These processes suggest a unique mechanism for the synthesis, storage, and slow, steady release of vitamin D3 from the skin into the circulation.

TLDR
The studies have provided evidence for an action of vitamin D on renal tubular phosphate reabsorption in healing rickets and some of the factors which determine their efficacy and the ultimate production of rickets.

TLDR
With treatment, there was correction of chemical and skeletal abnormalities, but few patients showed catch-up growth, and laboratory results indicated vitamin D deficiency in nursing mothers as as in infants.

TLDR
It is concluded that serum IgE determination is a valuable diagnostic tool in distinguishing between allergic and nonallergic asthma in selected cases, when it is used.

Immunoglobulin E (IgE) in serum was measured by an improved quantitative test (an assay with competitive inhibition of the binding of 125 I PS-IgE to bromacetylcellulose-anti-ND-IgE). IgE levels were
