Circulating vitamin D metabolites, polymorphism in vitamin D receptor, and colorectal adenoma risk.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Vitamin D is a potential agent for the prevention of colorectal cancer possibly through mechanisms mediated by the vitamin D receptor (VDR). We investigated the association of circulating vitamin D metabolites and a genetic variant of the VDR gene with advanced colorectal adenoma, a precursor lesion of colorectal cancer. METHODS Cases with… (More)
