Background: Vitamin D is associated with lung function in
cross-sectional studies, and vitamin D inadequacy is hypothesized to play a role in
the pathogenesis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Further data are needed to
clarify the relation between vitamin D status, genetic variation in vitamin D
metabolic genes, and cross-section... read moreal and longitudinal changes in lung function in
