Risk for tuberculosis (TB) progression, by baseline plasma vitamin D level. Risk for progression in 100 household contacts of TB patients are indicated in cohort-based tertiles of vitamin D levels in plasma at baseline: lowest, <7.4 ng/mL (red); middle, 7.4–13 ng/mL (black); highest, >13 ng/mL (blue). Plus signs indicate censoring points. Events are defined as time to diagnosis of active TB disease during follow-up.
