Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Relapse free survival [ Time Frame: study duration maximum 3,5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Disease free survival will be the primary endpoint of this phase III trial. Patients are enrolled during a recruitment phase of three years maximum. Study duration for one patient is maximum 3,5 years or until relapse occurs.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Melanoma subtype, as assessed clinically and histologically [ Time Frame: study duration maximum 3,5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Vitamin D levels at diagnosis will be correlated with melanoma subtype, as assessed clinically and histologically.

  • Melanoma site, as clinically recorded [ Time Frame: study duration maximum 3,5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Vitamin D levels at diagnosis will be correlated with melanoma site, as clinically recorded.

  • 25(OH)D3 serum levels [ Time Frame: study duration maximum 3,5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    25(OH)D3 serum levels will be recorded at diagnosis and at 6 months intervals up to final study visit. Genetic variability of Vitamin D pathway will be correlated with 25(OH)D3 serum levels

  • Stage of melanoma patient [ Time Frame: study duration maximum 3,5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Vitamin D levels at diagnosis and genetic variability of the vitamin D pathway will be correlated with stage of melanoma patient at diagnosis according to the 2009 American Joint Committee of Cancer (AJCC) Melanoma staging and classification


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Safety endpoints:Incidence and severity of adverse events [ Time Frame: study duration maximum 3,5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Incidence and severity of adverse events will be recorded every 3 months up to final study visit.

Detailed Description:

To assess whether vitamin D supplementation, in the follow up period after diagnosis and surgery of a first cutaneous malignant melanoma, has a protective effect on relapse of cutaneous malignant melanoma and whether this protective effect correlates with vitamin D levels in serum and vitamin D receptor (VDR) immunoreactivity in the primary tumor.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 80 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
