Vitamin D threshold to prevent aromatase inhibitor-related bone loss: the B-ABLE prospective cohort study.
Aromatase inhibitor (AI)-related bone loss is associated with increased fracture rates. Vitamin D might play a role in minimising this effect. We hypothesised that 25-hydroxy-vitamin D concentrations [25(OH)D] after 3 months supplementation might relate to bone loss after 1 year on AI therapy.
