From: Vitamin D and cathelicidin assessment in infection-induced asthma in Egyptian children

Variant   Vitamin D (ng/ml) Cathelicidin (ng/ml)
FVC % of predicted r 0.119 − 0.032
p 0.484 0.85
FVE1% of predicted r 0.095 0.013
p 0.576 0.938
FEV1/FVC% r 0.223 0.048
p 0.219 0.796
PEFR % of predicted r 0.348 − 0.008
p 0.035 0.961
FEF 25–75% of predicted r 0.124 0.199
p 0.466 0.237
  1. FVC forced vital capacity; FEV1 forced expiratory volume during first second; PEFR peak expiratory flow rate
