ABSTRACT Inhibitory effects of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25-(OH)2D3) on the proliferation of a variety of cancer cell lines have been extensively reported. We have studied the effect of 1,25-(OH)2D3 (10(-11)-10(-6) M) on the proliferation of a number of human and rat liver cancer cell lines. Additionally, the effect of 1,25-(OH)2D3 (0.02-0.5 microg/kg per day) on the rate of growth of liver cancer cell line xenografts in nude mice was also investigated. In vitro, proliferation of Hep-3B, PLC/PRF/5, and SKHEP-1 cells was significantly inhibited by 1,25-(OH)2D3, while HTC and Novikoff cells were more resistant to the inhibitory effects of the drug. In vivo, treatment of SKHEP-1 tumor bearing nude mice with different doses of 1,25-(OH)2D3 significantly retarded tumor growth without the development of hypercalcemia.

Well. One has to wonder if those folks on youtube claiming that they have reversed cancer with huge mega doses of vitamin d 3 and see are might be telling the truth.
