25-hydroxyvitamin d levels and acute cellular rejection in liver transplant patients. - Endocrine practice : official journal of the American College of Endocrinology and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists
To investigate the association between 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] levels prior to liver transplantation (LT) and the development of acute cellular rejection (ACR) within the first year post LT.This retrospective study included 275 consecutive LTs performed in 262 patients at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida over 13 months. A total of 149 patients met the inclusion criteria. The correlations between 25(OH)D levels and the development, severity, and number of biopsy-proven ACR episodes were assessed.The prevalence of 25(OH)D levels <30 ng/mL was 92%. No association was found between pre LT 25(OH)D levels and the diagnosis of ACR (P = .61). Mean ± SD pre LT 25(OH)D levels were 16.1 ± 6.8 ng/mL for 48 subjects with no rejection, 16.1 ± 8.2 ng/mL for those with a mild first episode of ACR (n = 58), and 18.4 ± 12.4 ng/mL for those who experienced a moderate/severe first ACR (n = 39). However, in a subgroup analysis of patients with 25(OH)D levels <30 ng/mL, there was a statistically significant negative correlation (P = .0252) between 25(OH) D level and the ACR rate.Vitamin D insufficiency and deficiency prior to LT was prevalent in our cohort. There was no statistically significant association between low 25(OH)D levels and the diagnosis or severity of ACR or the number of rejection episodes within the first year post LT. However, there was a negative correlation between 25(OH)D levels below 30 ng/mL and the rate of ACR within 1 year post LT.
