Plasma 25-hydroxyvitamin D, lung function and risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) may be associated with lung function through modulation of pulmonary protease-antiprotease imbalance, airway inflammation, lung remodelling and oxidative stress. We examined the association of plasma 25(OH)D levels with lung function, lung function decline and risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
