    Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D and colon cancer: eight-year prospective study.

    Blood samples taken in 1974 in Washington County, Maryland, from 25 620 volunteers were used to investigate the relation of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) with subsequent risk of getting colon cancer. 34 cases of colon cancer diagnosed between August, 1975, and January, 1983, were matched to 67 controls by age, race, sex, and month blood was taken. Risk of colon cancer was reduced by 75% in the third quintile (27-32 ng/ml) and by 80% in the fourth quintile (33-41 ng/ml) of serum 25-OHD. Risk of getting colon cancer decreased three-fold in people with a serum 25-OHD concentration of 20 ng/ml or more. The results are consistent with a protective effect of serum 25-OHD on colon cancer.

    Vitamin D status and the risk of lung cancer: a cohort study in Finland.
    Kilkkinen A, Knekt P, Heliövaara M, Rissanen H, Marniemi J, Hakulinen T, Aromaa A.
    Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev. 2008 Nov;17(11):3274-8.
    PMID: 18990771v

    In conclusion, although there was no overall association between vitamin D and lung cancer risk, women and young participants with a higher level of vitamin D were observed to have a lower lung cancer risk. Although experimental data support the suppressing effect of vitamin D on the development of lung cancer, large epidemiologic studies from different populations with repeated measurements of vitamin D are warranted to confirm this finding.

    Association between serum 25(OH)D and death from prostate cancer.
    Tretli S, Hernes E, Berg JP, Hestvik UE, Robsahm TE.
    Br J Cancer. 2009 Feb 10;100(3):450-4. Epub 2009 Jan 20.
    PMID: 19156140
    doi:10.1038/sj.bjc.6604865

    The serum level of 25(OH)D may be involved in disease progression and is a potential marker of prognosis in patients with prostate cancer.
