|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Vitamin D Deficiency Pre-Eclampsia||Drug: 400 IU Vitamin D3 Drug: 4000 IU Vitamin D3||Phase 1 Phase 2|
Vitamin D3 has key role in decidualization and implantation of placenta.Vitamin D deficiency is thought to have positive association with pre-eclampsia.Vitamin D deficiency is highly prevalent in some parts of the world and it is not universally screened antenatally. Pre-eclampsia is a known multifactorial pregnancy disorder with significant maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. Vitamin D3 has a down-regulating effect on inflammatory pathways and reducing endothelial cell damage.
Investigators want to assess in vitamin D deficient group whether treatment reduces the risk of pre-eclampsia.
