Higher Vitamin D Levels in Rituximab-treated MS Patients Linked to Lower Inflammatory Activity, Study Suggests

Publication date: Apr 11, 2019

This post was originally published on this site Rituximab-treated multiple sclerosis (MS) patients who take vitamin D supplements have less inflammatory activity, a study reports. Vitamin D is suggested to have a link with the immune system, and low circulating levels of vitamin D have been associated with an increase of inflammatory activity in MS patients. At UmecE5 University Hospital in Sweden, MS patients treated simultaneously with rituximab and vitamin D supplements were found to have less inflammatory activity, suggesting a possible relationship between rituximab-treated MS patients’ vitamin D levels and inflammatory activity.
