Vitamin D linked to surviving lymphoma

By Kelley Luckstein

U.S. researchers found vitamin D levels are associated with survival in lymphoma patients.

 

Lead investigator Dr. Matthew Drake of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., said the research team tracked 374 patients enrolled in the University of Iowa /Mayo Clinic Lymphoma Specialized Program of Research Excellence, who had been diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma -- a cancer of the white blood cells called lymphocytes.
