美国一项新研究发现,机体内维生素D水平与白血病之间存在紧密联系,维生素D不足可能会引起病情恶化,维生素D水平正常则会延长病人存活时间。

这项研究由美国梅奥诊所和艾奥瓦大学的研究人员共同完成,研究涉及390名慢性淋巴细胞白血病患者,其中30%的人在刚患病时被发现维生素D不足(即每毫升血液少于25毫微克)。在以后3年的跟踪调查期间,缺乏维生素D的白血病患者的病情恶化和接受化疗的几率要比其他病人高66%,死亡风险则要高两倍以上。

研究还发现,提高白血病患者的维生素D水平可延长他们的存活时间,这一结论不受与白血病发展有关因素的影响。

研究人员说,他们对另一组白血病患者进行了为期10年的研究,得出了同样结论。

研究人员指出,这一发现将有助于更有效地治疗白血病,因为病人可以根据需要及时补充维生素D,这一方法既简易可行,又不会产生副作用。

研究人员说,他们计划在另一项研究中调理患者的维生素D水平,看是否能以此改善病人的预后。

研究报告刊登在新一期美国学术期刊《血液》杂志上。

Vitamin D insufficiency is common globally with low levels linked to higher cancer incidence. Although vitamin D insufficiency is related to inferior prognosis in some cancers, no data exist for chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL). We evaluated the relationship of 25(OH)D serum levels with time-to-treatment(TTT) and overall survival(OS) in newly diagnosed CLL patients participating in a prospective cohort study(discovery cohort) and a separate cohort of previously untreated patients participating in an observational study(confirmation cohort). Of 390 CLL patients in the discovery cohort, 119(30.5%) were 25(OH)D insufficient. After median follow-up of 3 years, TTT(hazard ratio[HR]=1.66; p=0.005) and OS(HR=2.39; p=0.01) were shorter for 25(OH)D insufficient patients. In the validation cohort, 61 of 153 patients(39.9%) were 25(OH)D insufficient. After median follow-up of 9.9 years, TTT(HR=1.59; p=0.05) and OS(HR 1.63; p=0.06) were again shorter for 25(OH)D insufficient patients. On pooled multivariable analysis of patients in both cohorts adjusting for age, sex, stage, CD38, ZAP-70, IGHV, CD49d, and FISH, 25(OH)D insufficiency remained an independent predictor of TTT(HR=1.47; p=0.008), although the association with OS was not significant(HR=1.47; p=0.07). Vitamin D insufficiency is associated with inferior TTT and OS in CLL patients. Whether normalizing vitamin D levels in deficient CLL patients would improve outcome merits clinical testing.
