Vitamin D to Improve Outcomes by Leveraging Early Treatment: Long-term Brain Outcomes in Vitamin D Deficient Patients
This ancillary study will determine if early administration of a single high-dose (540,000 IU) oral vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) treatment improves 12-month global cognition and executive function as determined by comprehensive neuropsychological testing in 140 critically ill patients with Vitamin D deficiency at enrollment.

VIOLET-BUD is an ancillary study to a parent double-blinded, placebo-controlled randomized control trial (RCT) evaluating how a single, high-dose (540,000 IU) oral Vitamin D3 treatment affects 90-day mortality in patients who are at high risk for ARDS and have Vitamin D deficiency (plasma 25-hydroxyvitamin D < 20 ng/ml) at enrollment. The parent RCT (Vitamin D to Improve Outcomes by Leveraging Early Treatment [VIOLET], NCT03096314) is part of the Clinical Trials Network for the Prevention and Early Treatment of Acute Lung Injury (PETAL) sponsored by the NHLBI. The VIOLET trial completed enrollment in July 2018 with 1,360 randomized to either high dose, enteral Vitamin D3 or placebo.
This ancillary study will provide additional funding to perform comprehensive neuropsychological (cognitive) evaluations, which were not part of the parent trial. These neuropsychological evaluations will be conducted 12 (+/- 4) months after randomization among a subset of 140 survivors enrolled in VIOLET. This ancillary study will conducted in 7 (out of 42) sites.
