Chemotherapeutic and Chemopreventive Actions of Vitamin D3 Metabolites and Analogs

  • Thomas A. Brasitus

Part of the Nutrition and Health book series (NH)


Over the past 15 years, a number of exciting developments have occurred in the vitamin D field, including the discovery of new target tissues, elucidation of novel mechanisms of action, and the synthesis of analogs of vitamin D3, which, in general, are more potent and selective in their actions than naturally occurring active metabolites of vitamin D3 (1). These developments have in turn generated great interest in the potential use of vitamin D-related compounds to treat and/or prevent a number of pathologic conditions, including malignant transformation in a variety of organs.
