    Default Vitamin D supplements may help prevent immunotherapy induced colitis.

    Maybe worth trying if you're having this type of treatment for cancer.

    Unfortunately I cannot find any reference in the paper to how much vitamin d3 daily the people who said they were taking vitamin d at the begining of the study were actually taking.
    In all conditions with names ending it "itis" inflammation is involved.
    We have known How vitamin D inhibits inflammation that
    The highest levels of inflammatory inhibition occurred at 50 ng/ml.125nmol/l
    and that is about the natural 25(OH)D levels for humans. (if we lived near naked outdoor lives)
    What we didn't know was that cholecalciferol (the basic form of vitamin d3 which was thought to be inactive) is actually actively stabilising the endotheliium and providing the signalling modality that turns up/down the production of proinflammatory cytokines. so whether it's recovering from sunburn, or preventing cancer we need to control, regulate the inflammatory response and do so requires a good effective signalling mechanism which depends on the presence of CHOLECALCIFEROL in serum where it's half life is just 24 hours and 25 (OH)D has to be over 40ng/ml 100nmol/l be sure everyone has significant measureable amounts of choleclaciferol in serum.

    Wish the NHS charities donated Vitamin D to their staff, particularly those of BAME background. Surely better than donuts. Time to eat and have a proper break would help maintain health.
