Combined with the of prior research, the new findings suggest "an ongoing benefit for patients who maintain sufficient levels [of vitamin D] through and beyond breast cancer treatment," said study lead author Song Yao. He's a professor of oncology in the department of cancer prevention and control at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo, N. The study also found that Black women had the lowest vitamin D levels, which might help explain their generally poorer outcomes after a breast cancer diagnosis, Yao's group said.
The findings were presented at the recent virtual annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. One oncologist unconnected to the research said the findings could offer women a simple new way to fight breast cancer.
Vitamin D "can be found in some foods and is made when sunlight strikes human skin," explained Dr. The study involved nearly 4, patients who had their vitamin D levels checked and were followed for a median of almost 10 years. The study wasn't deed to prove cause and effect. The team also found that the association between vitamin D levels and breast cancer outcomes was similar regardless of the tumor's estrogen receptor ER status.
The association appeared somewhat stronger among lower-weight patients and those diagnosed with more advanced breast cancers. He wasn't involved in the new research, but called it "an important study, as it shows the ificance of sufficient vitamin D levels towards improving long-term survival for breast cancer patients.
The difference in outcomes between Black and white breast cancer patients "narrowed with higher vitamin D levels at the time of diagnosis," she noted. Because these findings were presented at a medical meeting, they should be considered preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.
