Vitamin D in cancer therapy

The dental news portal zm-online and the website for medical news DocCheck recently published a statement at the same time on the latest studies concerning vitamin D in oncology (1,2). Both websites refer to a team of researchers from Cologne, who identified a relationship between vitamin D deficiency and survival rate in patients with Hodgkin’s lymphoma (3).
Despite the available scientific data and increasing evidence for the outstanding importance of vitamin D, regular vitamin D determination is not recommended in current guidelines. Furthermore, there is no recommendation for a vitamin D supplementation. This is based on the fact that the actual benefit of administering vitamin D to patients has not yet been verified. It is suggested to implement further studies to prove the positive influence of vitamin D on the survival rate of cancer patients. In case of positive results, the determination and supplementation of vitamin D and other vitamins can be included in the oncological routine (1).
