  • Protocol No. VICCPED0974
  • Open Date: 09/10/2009
  • Staging: Pilot
  • Age Group: Children
  • Scope: Local
  • Objective: To identify the prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency and vitamin D deficiency in the first year post transplant. To identify host, treatment, dietary and environmental risk factors for vitamin D insufficiency/deficiency. Identify abnormalities in bone turnover and their association with vitamin D insufficiency/deficiency. Develop a biorepository of cryopreserved pre-transplant peripheral blood lymphocytes for the future evaluation of vitamin D receptor genetic polymorphisms.
