Serum Vitamin D and Risk of Breast Cancer within Five Years

Conclusions: In this cohort of women with elevated risk, high serum 25(OH)D levels and regular vitamin D supplement use were associated with lower rates of incident, postmenopausal breast cancer over 5 y of follow-up. These results may help to establish clinical benchmarks for 25(OH)D levels; in addition, they support the hypothesis that vitamin D supplementation is useful in breast cancer prevention. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP943 About This Article Received: 09 August 2016 Revised: 23 January 2017 Accepted: 06 February 2017 Published: 06 July 2017 Address correspondence to C.

Long history of symptoms and heterogeneous clinical presentation sometimes delays diagnosis. Children have been reported to have a better prognosis than adults in some series.The main emphasis of this study was to determine differences between children and adults and to investigate prognostic factors regarding cancer specific survi...

Malignant transformation of EC is a rare but severe complication associated with poor prognosis (2). Our letter aims to depict a rare case of diffuse leptomeningeal carcinomatosis on skull base and trigeminal perineural spread of a squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) complicating an EC.
