Annu Rev Nutr. 1987;7:137-56. doi: 10.1146/annurev.nu.07.070187.001033.

Abstract

It is clear that many diseases are known to involve defects in vitamin B6 metabolism, but that even more await definitive studies. Furthermore, some functions of vitamin B6, such as its role in glucocorticoid action (21), have been discovered so recently that the medical implications have not yet been fully explored.
