    Department of Genetics, Biology and Biochemistry, University of Turin, Italy
    Gynecol Oncol 119:121-4. 2010
    ..Little is known about vitamin D receptor (VDR) levels in patients with ovarian cancer. In this population we sought to determine correlations between VDR expression, clinical parameters and treatment outcome...
