The researchers found that for the vitamin D arm, 123 and 155 participants in the treatment and placebo groups, respectively, had confirmed autoimmune disease (hazard ratio, 0.78; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.61 to 0.99; P = 0.05). In the omega-3 fatty acids arm, a confirmed autoimmune disease was reported by 130 and 148 participants in the treatment and placebo groups, respectively (0.85; 0.67 to 1.08; P = 0.19). Confirmed autoimmune disease was reported in 63 participants who received vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids (0.69; 0.49 to 0.96), 60 who received only vitamin D (0.68; 0.48 to 0.94), and 67 who received only omega-3 fatty acids (0.74; 0.54 to 1.03) compared with 88 patients in the reference arm who received both placebos.
