Abstract Serum concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25-(OH)2D] of vitamin D2 and D3 origin were determined separately in 10 women before vitamin intake in early pregnancy, and repeated in maternal and cord serum obtained at delivery after 20 to 30 wk of vitamin D2 supplementation in a dose of 400 IU/day. Before supplementation 25-OHD2 and 1,25-(OH)D2D2 were present in just traceable or nondetectable concentrations, but the levels increased in all to a mean +/- 1 SD of 7.3 +/- 3.7 ng/ml and 37.2 +/- 18.1 pg/ml, respectively (p less than 0.0025), by the time of delivery. At delivery the total 25-OHD and 1,25-(OH)2D levels were always lower in the cord than in the maternal serum (30.7 +/- 14.2 versus 20.1 +/- 9.1 ng/ml, and 90.1 +/- 31.2 versus 37.3 +/- 11.6 pg/ml, p less than 0.0025). The paired concentrations of 25-OHD were closely related (r = 0.89, p less than 0.0005), while the association for 1,25-(OH)2D was not statistically significant (r = 0.53, p less than .01). The 25-OHD of D2 and D3 origin accounted for a similar proportion of the total 25-OHD in the maternal and cord serum (ratio of 25-OHD2 to 25-OHD3: 0.40 +/- 0.28 versus 0.45 +/- 0.29, p = NS), as did the respective 1,25-(OH)2D metabolites [ratio of 1,25-(OH)2D2 to 1,25-(OH)2D3: 0.73 +/- 0.35 versus 0.90 +/- 0.50, p = NS].(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
