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.
