Arch Intern Med -- 25-Hydroxyvitamin D Levels and the Risk of Mortality in the General ... - 0 views

    25-hydroxyvitamin D levels and the risk of mortality in the general population.
    Melamed ML, Michos ED, Post W, Astor B.
    Arch Intern Med. 2008 Aug 11;168(15):1629-37.
    PMID: 18695076

    Conclusion The lowest quartile of 25(OH)D level (<17.8 ng/mL) is independently associated with all-cause mortality in the general population.

    Prospective study of serum vitamin D and cancer mortality in the United States.
    Freedman DM, Looker AC, Chang SC, Graubard BI.
    J Natl Cancer Inst. 2007 Nov 7;99(21):1594-602. Epub 2007 Oct 30.
    PMID: 17971526

    CONCLUSIONS: Our results do not support an association between 25(OH)D and total cancer mortality, although there was an inverse relationship between 25(OH)D levels and colorectal cancer mortality.

    Prospective Study of Serum 25-Hydroxyvitamin D Level, Cardiovascular Disease Mortality, and All-Cause Mortality in Older U.S. Adults.
    Ginde AA, Scragg R, Schwartz RS, Camargo CA Jr.
    J Am Geriatr Soc. 2009 Jun 22. [Epub ahead of print]
    PMID: 19549021
    DOI: 10.1111/j.1532-5415.2009.02359.x

    CONCLUSION: In noninstitutionalized older adults, a group at high risk for all-cause mortality, serum 25(OH)D levels had an independent, inverse association with CVD and all-cause mortality. Randomized controlled trials of vitamin D supplementation in older adults are warranted to determine whether this association is causal and reversible.

Circulating 25-Hydroxyvitamin D Levels and Survival in Patients With Colorectal Cancer ... - 0 views

    Circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin d levels and survival in patients with colorectal cancer.
    Ng K, Meyerhardt JA, Wu K, Feskanich D, Hollis BW, Giovannucci EL, Fuchs CS.
    J Clin Oncol. 2008 Jun 20;26(18):2984-91.
    PMID: 18565885
    DOI: 10.1200/JCO.2007.15.1027

    Conclusion Among patients with colorectal cancer, higher prediagnosis plasma 25(OH)D levels were associated with a significant improvement in overall survival. Further study of the vitamin D pathway and its influence on colorectal carcinogenesis and cancer progression is warranted.

Vitamin D Supplementation and Total Mortality: A Meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled... - 0 views

    Vitamin D supplementation and total mortality: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
    Autier P, Gandini S.
    Arch Intern Med. 2007 Sep 10;167(16):1730-7. Review.
    PMID: 17846391

    Conclusions Intake of ordinary doses of vitamin D supplements seems to be associated with decreases in total mortality rates. The relationship between baseline vitamin D status, dose of vitamin D supplements, and total mortality rates remains to be investigated. Population-based, placebo-controlled randomized trials with total mortality as the main end point should be organized for confirming these findings.
