Find out more information on deficiency, supplementation, sun exposure, and how vitamin D relates to your health.

Has the effect of vitamin D levels been evaluated in animals infected with any of the ebolaviruses? Also, have potential vitamin D effects been evaluated in vitro with cultured ebolaviruses? And, might there be any epidemiological work looking at vitamin D levels' effect on disease outcomes of humans infected with any of the ebolaviruses? Thanks in advance!

    Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any research examining the relationship between vitamin D levels and ebolaviruses in animals or humans, or the in vitro effects of vitamin D on any of the ebolaviruses. If I find anything, I will post it to the Research subforum.

      Ebola is a viral hemorrhagic fever. There are other Viral hemorrhagic fevers. Dengue for example. Also Yellow Fever. Has there been any research regarding Vitamin D and these other viral hemorrhagic fevers? Can this research translate to Ebola?
