Vitamin D plays a pivotal role to maintain skeletal muscle integrity and health. Vitamin D deficiency characterizes inflammatory myopathy (IM) and diabetes, often overlapping diseases involving skeletal muscle damage. Vitamin D receptor (VDR) agonists likely exert beneficial effects in both IM and metabolic disturbances. We aim to evaluate in vitro the… CONTINUE READING
