Case control study of 150 COVID-19 patients and 150 healthy controls showing that COVID-19 patients had significantly lower vitamin D levels, and that the DBP gene polymorphism rs12785878 TG genotype was associated with higher risk of COVID-19 infection.

Materials and Methods Samples collection Samples were collected from Al-Diwaniyah Hospital from patients infected with Covid-19. The sample was divided into two parts, a section for DNA extraction to polymorphism and the other section for the purpose of examining the level of vitamin D. Primers ARMS-PCR primers for vitamin D binding protein gene polymorphism (DBP rs12785878 -T/G) were designed in this study using the NCBI-SNP data base and Pri-mer1 ARMS-PCR primers design online. These primers were provided by (Scientific Researcher. Co. Ltd. Iraq) as
