  Purpose

The main aim of the research question to test the primary hypothesis of this study, namely, Does 12 weeks of an additional 5000 IU daily of cholecalciferol increase serum 25OHD levels in adults with CF who have vitamin D deficiency relative to placebo?

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary outcome measure for this study is the change in mean serum 25OHD levels between the two groups [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean change from baseline for pulmonary function testing (FEV1 and FVC) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean change from baseline in serum calcium levels [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean change from baseline in parathyroid hormone levels [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean change from baseline in creatinine levels [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in the proportion of subjects whose 25OHD vitamin levels are above 75 nmol/L [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • A subgroup analysis by pancreatic status will be done to assess the impact of this factor on serum 25OHD levels [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
