Clinical Trial Summary

The ongoing pandemic of SARS CoV-2 virus is calling for effective preventive and theraputic interventions. Vitamin D has been shown to play immunemodulatory functions in human. Low vitamin D levels have been linked to increased susciptability to infections especially the acute respiratory infections. This randomised controlled study aims to explore the effect of vitamin D administration on the outcome of SARS- CoV2 virus

Clinical Trial Description

Background: Coronavirus disease COVID-19 is an ongoing pandemic and is causing avoidable fatalities worldwide. Vitamin D plays an essential role in the immune system. Vitamin D interferes with the majority of the immune systems cells such as macrophages, B and T lymphocytes, neutrophils and dendritic cells. We aim to find whether supplementation of vitamin D deficient diabetes with a single intramuscular cholecalciferol injection could improve the prognosis of those patients. Patients and Methods: This was a placebo controlled randomized prospective study, included cohorts of 40 diabetes elderly patients who got infected with SARS-CoV-2 compared with 16 elderly diabetes patients matched of the same age group who got infected with SARS-CoV-2 but given a placebo instead intramuscularly were used as a control. Clinical, laboratory, treatment, and outcome data were recorded after six weeks of follow up especially ICU admissions and fate of COVID-19 disease.Vitamin D was given as a single intramuscular injection during period of the study. ;
