Vitamin D supplementation decreases A. fumigatus specific Th2 response. CD11c + DCs with from patients with confirmed ABPA before and 8 and 24 weeks after supplementation with 4000 IU cholecalciferol daily (n = 7) were treated with a) media or b) TSLP (5 ng/ml) and then pulsed with Aspergillus Extract. Purified CD4+ T-cells were added for 96 h. Supernatants were harvested and analyzed by Luminex for IL-5 production. Data is graphed as a percentage of the stimulated response (CD3/CD28) for each individual patient at each time point)
