Abstract

Objectives: Lung cancer accounts for 20% of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Several studies have shown that Vitamin D levels at the time of diagnosis are prognostic in lung cancer. In this study, we evaluated the relationship between pre-diagnosis Vitamin D replacement levels and platinum-based chemotherapy results.
