In a 12-week randomized, controlled trial, ingestion of a vitamin D-fortified yogurt (170 mg calcium + 500 IU vitamin D/250 mL; n=50) twice daily decreased markers of inflammation compared with placebo yogurt (170 mg calcium; n=50). Compared with baseline measures, the 25(OH)D levels were increased and the TNF-alpha, IL-6, hsCRP, SAA, and IL-10 levels were decreased in the group supplemented with vitamin D compared with the group that received placebo.

The number of contrast-enhancing lesions was also less in the natalizumab-treated group.
