Abstract Under natural conditions, guinea pigs (Cavia porcellus) are exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation. While the role of {UVB} radiation in the photobiochemical synthesis of vitamin D is well documented in humans and other vertebrates, to date it has not been evaluated in guinea pigs. The purpose of this study was to determine whether artificial {UVB} radiation has an effect on serum 25-hydroxyvitamin {D3} levels in guinea pigs. Twelve juvenile guinea pigs were randomly assigned to one of two treatment groups: Group A was exposed to 12 hours of artificial {UVB} radiation (290–315 nm) daily and Group B received ambient fluorescent light with no {UVB} supplementation for 12 hours/day. Blood samples were collected under anesthesia on days 0 and 18 to measure serum 25-hydroxyvitamin {D3} levels. Animals in both groups were offered the same diet. There was a significant difference in 25-hydroxyvitamin {D3} concentrations over time (F=399.
