Epidemiologic data are inconsistent regarding the vitamin E-lung cancer association, and no study has examined serologic changes in vitamin E status in relation to subsequent risk.
Vitamin E was proposed as treatment for Alzheimer's disease many years ago. However, the effectiveness of the drug is not clear. Vitamin E is an antioxidant and neuroprotector and it has anti-inflammatory and hypocholesterolemic properties, driving to its importance for brain health. Moreover, the levels of vitamin E in Alzheimer's disease patients are lower than in non-demented controls. Thus, vitamin E could be a good candidate to have beneficial effects against Alzheimer's. However, evidence is consisten...
A large body of experimental and observational data has implicated vitamin D deficiency in the development of cardiovascular disease. However, evidence to support routine vitamin D supplementation to prevent or treat cardiovascular disease is lacking.
Epidemiologic and preclinical data suggest a potential role for vitamin D in breast cancer treatment and prevention. However, results of prospective randomized trials are inconsistent. The objective of this study was to assess the effects of high-dose cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) on breast tumour proliferation and apoptosis.
There is evidence vitamin A plays a role in neuroblastoma. Not only is 13-cis-retinoic acid used as maintenance therapy for high-risk cases, but prenatal vitamin intake use may decrease neuroblastoma risk. We hypothesized that single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in vitamin A-related genes are may be associated with neuroblastoma risk and potentially be modified by vitamin A intake.
Number needed to treat based on real-world evidence for non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants versus vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants in stroke prevention in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation.
Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) and vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) are used to prevent stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). This paper aimed to evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of NOACs when compared to VKAs by calculating the number needed to treat (NNT) at 2 years using incidence rates and hazard ratios (HRs) derived from a meta-analysis of studies conducted in real-world settings.
Vitamin D3 is known to have anticancer actions by affecting tumorigenesis including the cell cycle and cell apoptosis in gastric cancer (GC) cells; the genes including microRNAs (miRNAs) regulated by vitamin D3 signaling remain discovered. miR-99b-3p, the tumor suppressor gene, is not only decreased in GC tissues, but is also induced by vitamin D3 through the vitamin D receptor (VDR) binding on the promoter domain of miR-99b. Further study indicates that miR-99b-3p inhibits cell viability and induces cell a...
Vitamin D deficiency has high prevalence worldwide. Vitamin D3, the active form of vitamin D, exhibits array of roles in body, from calcium homeostasis and bone mineralization to cancer, neurological disorders, immunomodulatory action, and cardiac health. Current approaches for supplementing vitamin D3 are restricted to oral and parenteral routes. This review highlights recent research in the field of transdermal delivery of vitamin D, its active form and analogues with the aid of penetration enhancers and ...
African-American (AA) men tend to present with more aggressive prostate cancer (Gleason score >7) than European-American (EA) men. Vitamin D and its metabolites are implicated in prostate cancer biology with vitamin D deficiency, indicated by its metabolite levels in serum or plasma, usually observed in AA men.
Although vitamin D has been reported to have pleiotropic effects including effects on the immune system and on cancer progression, the principal action of vitamin D is the maintenance of calcium and phosphate homeostasis. The importance of vitamin D in this process is emphasized by the consequences of vitamin D deficiency which includes rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Vitamin D deficiency has also been reported to increase the risk of falls and osteoporotic fractures. Although vitamin D fort...
The study aimed to determine whether 25-OH vitamin D deficiency is present in patients with diagnosed BCC, and the effect of vitamin D replacement on the rates of BCC recurrence in patients with 25-OH vitamin D deficiency. In this prospective study, between 2012 and 2017, in the first stage, 25-OH vitamin D levels of all patients diagnosed with BCC between 2012 and 2013 were evaluated. In the second stage between 2014 and 2015, we evaluated the 25-OH vitamin D level of patients who had 25-OH vitamin D level...
Within the last decade, multiple studies have demonstrated the potential health benefits of vitamin D supplementation including improved bone health, reduced fracture risk, protection from autoimmune disease, and decreased cancer risk. Because of the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in pediatric populations and despite recent evidence of increased vitamin D supplementation in the United States, our goal is to assess the knowledge of current vitamin D recommendations among pediatric orthopaedists and fello...
Genetic Variations in VDR could Modulate the Efficacy of Vitamin D3 Supplementation on Inflammatory Markers and Total Antioxidant Capacity among Breast Cancer Women: A Randomized Double Blind Controlled Trial.
Low levels of vitamin D are found in a great part of breast cancer women. Study subjects using vitaminD3 supplement had lower rates of cancers and fewer markers of inflammation. Additionally, recent studies demonstratethe power of vitamin D supplementation to lower inflammation and oxidative stress biomarkers associate with VDRpolymorphism to reduce inflammation. This study was aimed to assess the impact of vitamin D3 supplementation onthe serum concentration of inflammatory markers and antioxidant capacity...
Patients with respiratory diseases such as cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or asthma often experience an acute worsening of respiratory symptoms, termed exacerbations. Although the course of exacerbations is disease specific, they are mostly triggered by a respiratory infection. Exacerbations often require hospitalization and are an important cause of mortality. Treatments of exacerbations aim to minimize the negative impact and to prevent subsequent events. Despite many existing the...
Vitamin D2 and vitamin D3 have been hypothesized to exert differential effects on vitamin D metabolism.
Previous meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of vitamin D supplementation and total cancer incidence and mortality found inconsistent results, and most included trials administered generally low doses of vitamin D (≤ 1100 IU/day). We updated the meta-analysis by incorporating recent RCTs that have tested higher doses of vitamin D supplements.
Previous studies have found that meat-derived mutagens increase, and vitamin C or E decrease, the risk of pancreatic cancer.
Vitamin deficiencies may reflect less-than-optimal health in select populations. The aim of this study was to determine whether vitamin D supplementation (VDs) after malnutrition may be adversely related to cancer diagnoses in a selected group of patients with alcoholic Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (WKS).
Vitamin D deficiency is a major health problem which affects about one billion people in the world. Although, vitamin D supplementation is recommended as standard treatment of vitamin D deficiency, there are controversies on dose response relationship. In this regard, the present study aimed to determine the impact of vitamin D3 supplement on raising of serum 25 hydroxyvitamin D[25(OH)D] in healthy subjects with varying degrees of vitamin D deficiency.
Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS) have evaluated several genes related to vitamin D synthesis, metabolism and transport. They have proposed a genetic basis for low levels of vitamin D in the blood. The current study aims to investigate the relationship between certain vitamin D-associated gene variants and vitamin D deficiency in Iranian adolescents.
Scientific evidence linking vitamin D with various cancer types is growing, but the effects of vitamin D on ovarian cancer stem cell‑like cells (CSCs) are largely unknown. The present study aimed to examine whether vitamin D was able to restrain the stemness of ovarian cancer. A side population (SP) from malignant ovarian surface epithelial cells was identified as CSCs, in vitro and in vivo. Furthermore, 1α,25‑dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1α,25(OH)2D3] treatment inhibited the self‑renewal capacity of SP cel...
The aim of this descriptive study was to assess the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in patients on active therapy for multiple myeloma in a tropical climate. We also tested for the association of vitamin D status on clinical outcomes.
For many individuals, in particular during winter, supplementation with the secosteroid vitamin D3 is essential for the prevention of bone disorders, muscle weakness, autoimmune diseases and possibly also of different types of cancer. Vitamin D3 acts via its metabolite 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2D3] as potent agonist of the transcription factor vitamin D receptor (VDR). Thus, vitamin D directly affects chromatin structure and gene regulation at thousands of genomic loci, i.e. the epigenome and tra...
Low levels of vitamin D were found to be associated with different mental disorders. However, the role of vitamin D in the pathogenesis of PTSD is unclear. In this study, we aimed at investigating whether PTSD is linked to reduced vitamin D levels and vitamin D deficiency. Moreover, we sought to investigate the role of the vitamin D-binding protein (also group-specific component or Gc) by testing if two functional polymorphisms (rs4588 and rs7041) were associated with vitamin D levels and PTSD.
Adequate intake of vitamin D and calcium are fundamental for the treatment of osteoporosis. A normal vitamin D status is required for optimal intestinal calcium absorption. However, general calcium and vitamin D supplementation is not sufficient for prevention of osteoporotic fractures in persons older than 50 years. Nevertheless, vitamin D deficiency should be avoided and corrected. In particular, parts of the population with increased risk for vitamin D deficiency (immobilized or older individuals, swarth...
