By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Drug Week -- New research on Angiogenesis is the subject of a report. According to news reporting originating in Fargo, North Dakota, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Various epidemiological studies have demonstrated that vitamin D may play important roles in the pathogenesis and progression of cancer."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the Department of Pharmaceutical Science, "Vitamin D is one of the most pivotal nutraceuticals whose active metabolite, calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D-3), possesses anti-proliferative, pro-apoptotic, and pro-differentiating capabilities. Accumulating evidence indicates that the potential benefits of using vitamin D in cancer are not only anti-cancer cell proliferation which is linked with its anti-inflammatory effects, including the suppression of prostaglandin metabolism and inhibition of NF-kappa B signaling, but also suppressing tumor metastasis and angiogenesis."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Here, we present a systematic summary of the effects of vitamin D in the chemoprevention and chemotherapy of cancer, especially anti-metastatic and anti-angiogenic actions."
