Özet

Objective: It has been shown that vitamin D has very important biologic effects including cell differentiation, inhibition of proliferation and immune modulation. Vitamin D levels may affect the immune system and host response to viral infections, such as hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. Our aim in this study was to see whether or not there is a relationship between vitamin D levels and chronic HBV infection.
