Many advances in vitamin D physiology and biochemistry have been
made in recent years. Vitamin D metabolites and analogs have found
increasing application in clinical medicine. The purpose of this
text is to review what is known about vitamin D physiology and draw
attention to areas of vitamin D research that have changed within
the last 2-3 years. Additionally, information concerning clinical
aspects of vitamin D is also presented. More than 40 scientists
have generously contributed chapters to this text; I thank them for
their efforts. As might be expected, not everyone has the same
point of view. Finally, I would like to acknowledge the secretarial
and editorial efforts of Mrs. Cheryl Collins without whom this book
would not have been completed. CONTRIBUTORS ETSUKO ABE, Department
