The variety of tissue cells express receptors of vitamin D. The possible causative connection between lack of vitamin D and a number of inflammatory diseases such as bronchial asthma has stimulated interest in the potentially positive effects of vitamin D in the theraputic schemes. Conflicting data was demonstrated by numerous studies concerning the relationship of vitamin D and development of asthma . Most of them stress attention on the lack of studies with targeting population excluding subclasters and phenotypes of bronchial asthma, especially groups associated with low levels of vitamin D obesity, COPD and asthma, atopic patients. The question of prescribing of vitamin D in asthma, in the case of laboratory-proven deficiency or lack of vitamin D can be an option in therapy.
