Abstract

Recently, the role of vitamin D in immunomodulation has been studied and shown to be significantly associated with immune function. A causal relationship exists between vitamin D and innate and adaptive immunity to infections. Recent findings on the function of vitamin D may explain aspects of the pathophysiology of various allergic diseases including allergic rhinitis, asthma, and even chronic rhinosinusitis.
