The following abstracts will be presented: [1650.4] Results of NICHD Two-Site Maternal Vitamin D Supplementation Randomized Controlled Trial during Lactation Carol L. Wagner, Cynthia R. Howard, Thomas C. Hulsey, Myla Ebeling, Judy R. Shary, Pamela G. Smith, Cynthia Childs, Martha Murphy, Sarah N. Taylor, Ruth A. Lawrence, Bruce W. Hollis. Pediatrics, Medical Univ of SC, Charleston, SC; Pediatrics, Univ of Rochester, Rochester, NY. BACKGROUND: AAP recommends all breastfed (BrF) infants receive vitamin D supplementation (vitD-S) starting within 1st few days after birth. This addresses infant but not mother's status: Could maternal vitD-S at higher doses provide adequate levels in breast milk without toxicity to mother, effectively treating both mother and her BrF infant? OBJECTIVE: To assess safety and effectiveness of maternal vitD-S of 6400 or 2400 IU/day alone compared with maternal and infant vitD-S of 400 IU/day. H1: BrF infant 25(OH)D through maternal vitD 6400 IU/day alone would be equivalent to maternal and infant vitD-S 400 IU/day with no differences in safety and would be superior to maternal vitD-S with 2400 IU/day alone. DESIGN/METHODS: Fully BrF women and their infants at 4-6 wks postpartum living in Charleston, SC and Rochester, NY participated. Women randomized to 1 of 3 tx grps substratified by race:Control (400 IU vitD/day), 2400 IU/day or 6400 IU/day. Infants of Control mothers received 400 IU/day while infants of 2400 and 6400 IU grps received placebo. 1o outcome measure: serum 25(OH)D at 7 mos postpartum in both mother and infant. Maternal & infant serum Ca, phos, and maternal urinary Ca: Cr ratios monitored monthly. Participants/study team blinded to tx. RESULTS: 476 mother/infant dyads enrolled into 3 tx grps: 206 in 400 IU, 71 in 2400 IU, and 199 in 6400 IU grp. 2400 IU grp stopped in 2009 as tx failed to increase infant levels—higher # with vitD def
