Abstract

Vianne Nsengiyumva conducted experimental investigations into the role of vitamin D on abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). Vitamin D supplementation to achieve optimal circulating levels slowed the growth of AAA. Findings from this thesis are supportive of clinical trials to examine regulating vitamin D levels in AAA patients.
