  • A 2-Year Follow-Up After a 2-Year RCT with Vitamin D and Exercise: Effects on Falls, Injurious Falls and Physical Functioning Among Older Women.  Kirsti Uusi-Rasi, Radhika Patil, Saija Karinkanta, Pekka Kannus, Kari Tokola, Christel Lamberg-Allardt, Harri Sievänen.  The Journals of Gerontology: Series A (Medical Science), Volume 72, Issue 9,  September 1, 2017, Pages 1239–1245.  Published online: March 21, 2017.
    Exercise-induced benefits in physical functioning partly remained 2 years after cessation of supervised training. Although there was no difference in the rate of all falls, former exercise groups continued to have lower rate of medically attended injured fallers compared with referents even 2 years after the intervention. Vitamin D without exercise was associated with less injurious falls with no difference in physical functioning.
