Vitamin D, PTH, and calcium and tumor aggressiveness in prostate cancer: a prospective nested case-control study.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Epidemiological studies suggest that low levels of vitamin D (25OHD) constitute a risk factor for more aggressive prostate cancer. We examined the relationship between pre-diagnostic serum levels of vitamin D, parathyroid hormone (PTH), and calcium and risk of prostate cancer according to tumor aggressiveness.
