In addition to being important in calcium and phosphorus metabolism, bone formation, and mineralization, vitamin D also plays a part in the maintenance of immune homeostasis. Vitamin D receptors are expressed in a number of different tissues, including, and perhaps most notably, on immune cells. The presence or absence of activated vitamin D has a number of effects on in vitro immune cell function. This review describes the possible immunoregulatory role of vitamin D in rheumatoid arthritis… 
An Evaluation of High-Dose Vitamin D for Rheumatoid Arthritis
TLDR
It is hypothesized that correction of hypovitaminosis D in subjects with RA would decrease parathyroid hormone (PTH), increase bone mineral density (BMD), improve functional capacity (Health Assessment Questionnaire, HAQ) and down-regulate inflammatory cytokines, thereby diminishing RA disease activity (RA-DAS) scores and improving quality of life.

TLDR
Studies looking at the clinical effects of supplementing RA patients with vitamin D suggest that patients with lower levels of 25(OH)D may benefit more from supplementation compared to those whose levels are adequate, and the current recommendations suggest that the target concentration should be 20 ng/mL (50 nmol/L) for bone health and 30 ng-OH-D for immunomodulatory effects.
ASSOCIATION BETWEEN VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY AND AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES
TLDR
The importance of vitamin D defi ciency in autoimmune diseases is described and the mechanisms by which vitamin D protects against autoimmune disease have yet to be identified.
Role of Vitamin D in rheumatoid arthritis and its association with neuropathic pain: a systematic review and meta-analysis
• Background: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most common autoimmune disease found in about 1% of adults worldwide. The cause of RA is unknown but there is a combination of genetic and multiple
Vitamin D Deficiency, Osteoporosis and Effect on Autoimmune Diseases and Hematopoiesis: A Review
TLDR
This review aims to investigate the link between VD deficiency, osteoporosis, and its concomitant diseases and suggests adequate vitamin supplementation and restoration of metabolic normality could be useful for better management of these pathologies.
Vitamin D in Systemic and Organ-Specific Autoimmune Diseases
TLDR
The body of evidence regarding the plausible roles of vitamin D and VDR’s polymorphism in the pathogenesis of autoimmunity is presented and the rational for vitamin D supplementation in patients suffering from autoimmune diseases is addressed.
Vitamin D in rheumatoid arthritis

    Expert review of clinical immunology
  • 2013
TLDR
Although the pathogenic importance of hypovitamosis D in RA is still unclear, there appears to be a clearer picture about the risk of developing RA with insufficient intake of 25(OH)D 3 in the diet, as well as a lower risk of RA in elderly women.
Vitamin D level in Rheumatoid arthritis and its correlation with the disease activity
TLDR
Vitamin D deficiency is more common in autoimmune diseases as RA and may be one of the leading cause of increased disease activity.

  • 2015
TLDR
Assessment of the levels of vitamin D in patients with RA and the relationship between vitamin D level and disease activity in a well-characterized group of Chinese Han with recent-onset RA report that low levels are also seen even in early RA.

TLDR
While supplements of vitamin D improve musculoskeletal symptoms, proof is still lacking that these doses convey a protection from cancer, Interventional studies that administer vitamin D versus placebo in patients with cancer should be a high priority.

Clinical aspects of vitamin D in the management of rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
Clinicians should be aware of the technical difficulties associated with measuring and interpreting 25(OH)D levels and older patients, particularly post-menopausal women, and others at high risk of vitamin D deficiency should be preferentially targeted since they are likely to benefit most from supplementation.
The Complex Role of Vitamin D in Autoimmune Diseases
TLDR
The review aims at describing the complex immune‐regulatory role of vitamin D from the cellular level through autoimmune animal models and depicting the known contribution ofitamin D in the pathogenesis of human autoimmune diseases.
Issues with vitamin D in routine clinical practice.
TLDR
This issue explores and touches upon a number of issues pertaining to vitamin D in routine clinical practice, including the lack of clear cut advice about when to request 25-OH D, even in patients with known osteoporosis and the definition of a low vitamin D concentration.
Vitamin D receptors in the rheumatoid lesion: expression by chondrocytes, macrophages, and synoviocytes
TLDR
VDR expression has been demonstrated by most specimens of cartilage-pannus junction; was associated with various cell types, including chondrocytes, but not exclusively with CD68+ macrophages; and suggests a contributory role for 1α,25D3 in the pathophysiological processes of rheumatoid arthritis.

TLDR
IL-1β-activated rheumatoid synovial fibroblasts and human articular chondrocytes were shown to respond differently to exposure to 1α,25(OH)2D3, which has different effects on the regulatory pathways of specific matrix metalloproteinases and prostaglandin E2.
