Abstract

Objective: To evaluate whether vitamin D is associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) status and disease severity in African Americans. Methods: Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D was compared in a cross-sectional sample of 339 African Americans with MS and 342 African American controls. Correlations between disease severity (Multiple Sclerosis Severity Score [MSSS]) and 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels were sought. Results: A total of 71% of controls and 77% of patients with MS were vitamin D deficient (
