Commentary: Mendelian randomization analysis identifies circulating vitamin D as a causal risk factor for ovarian cancer

 
In summary, Ong et al. present evidence for a causal role of low levels of circulating vitamin D in overall and high-grade serous ovarian cancer, using two-sample MR methodology.1 Circulating vitamin D levels are modifiable and supplementation may hold potential for ovarian cancer prevention strategies; therefore, further work is needed both to replicate findings presented in this analysis and to help elucidate the mechanisms by which circulating vitamin D may influence ovarian cancer.
