Ovarian cancerTreatment

There are no results for treating ovarian cancer with vitamin D. 

However, studies on serum 25(OH)D levels at time of diagnosis of breast1 found that those with higher levels (>30 ng/mL) had about twice the 12-year survival rate of those with lower levels.  Similar results were found for colorectal cancer2.
