Subsequently, other investigators observed that, in critically ill patients with vitamin D deficiency, administration of high-dose vitamin D3 compared with placebo did not reduce mortality. Inconsistent results fueled confusion about whether vitamins A or E lower the risk for developing lung cancer. Some clinical trials produced results suggesting efficacy, but other large randomized trials reported that these vitamins increased lung cancer risk.
