Objective Vitamin D has taken center stage in research and treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). The objective of the present study was to assess the serum vitamin D levels of a large population of patients with MS and controls living in a restricted tropical area. Methods Data from 535 patients with MS and 350 control subjects were obtained from 14 cities around the Tropic of Capricorn. Results The mean serum 25-OH vitamin D level was 26.07 ± 10.27 ng/mL for the control subjects, and 28.03… CONTINUE READING
