New animal study suggests inflammation due to asthma does not change vitamin D levels

Airway hyperresponsiveness refers to oversensitive lungs, a common symptom of asthma.

    The mice were getting 2000 IU/kg in their feed

    The experiment would probably have had drastically different results if it had been done on vitamin D deficient mice.
