Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentration in relation to melanoma progress
Wyatt, Candy (2013) Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentration in relation to melanoma progress. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
Dr Wyatt’s study investigated the complex relationship between vitamin D and melanoma, specifically if vitamin D status is associated with more aggressive melanomas. Exposure to solar ultraviolet radiation is the principal risk factor for melanoma and also the main source of vitamin D. This research found that insufficient vitamin D at time of melanoma diagnosis is significantly associated with poorer prognosis (as defined by tumour thickness). These results will contribute to a more refined public health message concerning melanoma and vitamin D, particularly in Queensland, which has the highest global incidence of melanoma, but vitamin D deficiency is not uncommon.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
