VitDAL research presented at Scottish BSAVA

Richard Mellanby was presenting data from the VitDAL at the Scottish BSAVA Conference this week. He gave an overview of recent VitDAL studies on vitamin D homeostasis disorders in companion animals before talking about the lab’s ongoing research exploring the immune-modulatory properties of vitamin D. Richard was also able to highlight the progress made in developing vitamin D metabolite assays, including 25 hydroxyvitamin D, which the lab is now routinely measuring in sheep and dog samples using state-of-the-art ultra-high performance liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry technologies.
