Thyroid Hormones and Vitamin D in Patients with Breast Cancer with Mutations in BRCA1 or BRCA2 Genes



abstract
May 13, 2016
 40 patients with BC (10 patients with mutations in the BRCA1 gene, 10 with mutations in the BRCA2 gene, and 20 without mutations,

 Conclusion: No association between the thyroid hormones and BC in BRCA1/2-mutation carriers was found. Vitamin D was significantly elevated in BRCA2-mutation carriers and the observation of a better tumor grade in this group could be consistent with the ability of vitamin D to inhibit growth and induce differentiation.
