Vitamin D3

WARNING - Adverse effects from occupational exposure to vitamin D3 have been occurred. Cholecalciferol is used to prevent vitamin D deficiency or rickets. Vitamin D3 is hydroxylated in the kidney to yield 1,25- dihydroxycholecalciferol, or calcitriol, which is a physiologic regulator of calcium absorption. The principal biologic function of vitamin D is to maintain serum calcium and phosphorus concentrations within the normal range by enhancing the efficiency of the small intestine to absorb these minerals from the diet. Calcitriol (activated vitamin D) enhances the efficiency of intestinal calcium absorption along the entire small intestine, but principally in the duodenum and jejunum. Calcitriol also enhances phosphorus absorption along the entire small intestine, but principally in the jejunum and ileum. The activated forms of ergocalciferol, doxercalciferol, and cholecalciferol may have a negative feedback effect on parathyroid hormone production. The most two important mechanisms by which vitamin D acts to maintain normal concentration of calcium and phosphate in plasma are to facilitate their absorption by the small intestine and to enhance their mobilization from bone.

Why do you need this OEL Fastrac monograph?

OEL Fastrac monographs are a cost-effective and convenient way to meet the requirements for PDEs (ADEs) contained in the EMA Guideline on setting health based exposure limits for use in risk identification in the manufacture of different medicinal products in shared facilities (EMA/CHMP/CVMP/SWP/169430/2012), and to obtain the following information:

  • The numerical OEL and control band assignment needed to determine the level of required engineering controls and personal protective equipment
  • A listing of all cited references utilized in the derivation of the OEL and ADE
  • An expert review and discussion with respect to the critical endpoints of concern, the rationale for the choice of endpoints, and dose that is to be used in the derivation of the ADE (PDE), as required by the EMA's Guideline on setting health-based exposure limits for use in risk identification in the manufacture of different medicinal products in shared facilities
