Vitamin D Dynamics in WomenResearch Question:
How is vitamin D metabolized during pregnancy?
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: University of Rochester, 518 Hylan Building
The goal of this pilot project is to utilize stable isotopically labeled vitamin D3
of the art mass spectrometric methodology to assess vitamin D dynamics during pregnancy
relation to calcitropic hormone status at this key life stage. At the conclusion of
study, the investigators will have obtained novel information on the absorption and
utilization of vitamin D in women and determined if maternal vitamin D3 or maternal
or both, can be transferred across the placenta to the fetus. The long-term goal is
understand the unique metabolism of vitamin D during pregnancy.
