A Clinical Trial of Vitamin D for Bone Health in People with NF1

If you are an adult with NF1, between ages 25 and 40, you may be eligible to take part in a study on bone health.

The purpose of the research is to see if we can maintain or improve bone health in adults who have NF1 by giving them vitamin D and calcium supplements for two years.

As you may know, osteoporosis (loss of bone density that can lead to bone breakage, spine curvature, and other problems) is a common concern in NF1. We hope to show whether or not vitamin D supplements will protect people's bones.

If you have questions or would like to participate, please contact the study nurse, Patricia Birch, at 604-875-2000 ext. 5622, or by email: Patricia.Birch@ubc.ca
