Working paper Open Access
A small survey of literature about Vitamin D and inhibition and expression of interleukins and tumor necrosis factors. Could Vitamin D have a possible role in Covid-19 Cytokine Release Syndrome? A study of its role when tocilizumab is used exists, and therefore Vitamin D could be considered when tocilizumab is involved in the mitigation of the cytokine storm. However, another question also exists and it is the following. Might Vitamin D induce antimicrobial peptides to reduce SARS-CoV-2 replication?
