Papers from a large symposium held in January 1977 at the Asilomar Conference Center, California. Biochemistry; metabolism and regulation; intestinal, skeletal, and renal actions; assays; nutritional functions; and clinical applications. The clinical part of the text concerns osteomalacia and rickets, osteoporosis, renal osteodystophy, renal failure, renal tubular syndromes, hepatobiliary disease, anticonvulsant drugs, and parathyroid-gland disease. The collection is not a coherent and readable introduction to this rapidly growing field of clinical investigation but it does give a detailed and wide survey of current research and views to those already familiar with the past decade's progress with vitamin D.
