VitD level and miR-378 negative assoc With Viral Load in Patients

full study in the link
Abstract

Background: Chronic Hepatitis B (CHB) is accompanied by inflammation of liver because of infection with Hepatitis B Virus (HBV). Previous studies revealed an inverse association between vitamin D and HBV DNA levels.

Objectives: The current study aimed to investigate the levels of 25 (OH) D3 (the steady form of vitamin D), miR-378 and HBV DNA in the patients with CHB.

Patients and Methods: One hundred and seventy three patients with HBeAg negative CHB were recruited for the study. Plasma levels of HBVDNA and 25 (OH) D3 were quantified. The expression level of miR-378 in plasma was measured by a relative quantitative Real Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (qRT-PCR) assay.

Results: In the pathway regression analysis, the plasma level of 25 (OH) D3 showed a significant inverse correlation with plasma levels of HBV DNA (-0.198, P = 0.008) and direct correlation with miR-378 (0.188, P = 0.013). Similarly plasma level of miR-378 had inverse association with HBV DNA level (-0.177, P = 0.020).

Conclusions: These results suggest that vitamin D could involve in a miRNA- mediated regulatory pathway in control of HBV replication. Further studies are recommended to understand the effects of miR-378 and anti-infective action of vitamin D on Hepatitis B Virus.

Oh..Nice info stef.Looks like it controls only viral replication not HBsAg.

When I've started d3 supplementation my HBV DNA level was 5600 and after 3 months it was 700. Unfortunatelly I don't have any previous results to prove it wasn't just fluctuations.

What dosage are you using may I ask? Homeopath asked me to start 4000 iu a day.  Do u think this is a good dosage for being 3 points under the low end of normal?
