Title:  Rationale for Raising Current Clinical Practice Guideline Target for Serum 25-Hydroxyvitamin D in Chronic Kidney Disease
Speaker: Stuart Sprague, DO, Professor of Medicine, University of Chicago and Chief of Nephrology, North Shore University Health System, Chicago, IL

Summary: ERC therapy produced exposure-dependent reductions in plasma iPTH and bone turnover markers only when mean serum total 25-hydroxyvitamin D reached at least 50.8 ng/mL, indicating that current targets for vitamin D repletion therapy in CKD are too low.  Gradual elevation of mean serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D to 92.5 ng/mL was not associated with significant adverse changes in safety parameters.
