- The prognostic value of 3 types (total, bioavailable, and free) of 25-hydroxy vitamin D [25(OH)D] and vitamin D binding protein (VDBP) in patients with sepsis is unknown. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of levels of those 3 types of 25(OH) D and VDBP with 30-day mortality in patients with sepsis. From March to December 2018, patients diagnosed with sepsis and admitted to the medical intensive care unit were enrolled, prospectively. We measured total 25(OH)D and VDBP levels, performedGCgenotyping for the polymorphisms rs4588 and rs7041, and calculated bioavailable and free 25(OH)D levels. Total, bioavailable, and free 25(OH)D levels did not differ in 30-days nonsurvivors and survivors. Serum VDBP level was significantly higher in survivors than nonsurvivors (138.6 ug/mL vs 108.2 ug/mL,P = .023) and was associated with 30-day mortality in univariate but not multivariate analysis.VDBPpolymorphisms and allele frequencies were not statistically different between the groups. Serum VDBP level was significantly higher in survivors than nonsurvivors over 30-days mortality in septic patients. However, 3 types (total, bioavailable, and free) of 25(OH)D levels did not differ between the survivors and nonsurvivors group.
