Vitamin D5 is a form of vitamin D.

Analogues have been proposed for use as antitumor agents.[1][2][3] Studies on vitamin D3 has shown inhibition of cell proliferation in prostate cancer, but vitamin D3 also results in hypercalcemia. Analogs of vitamin D5 have also been used to study its effects on prostate cancer, but unlike vitamin D3, vitamin D5 not only leads to inhibition of cell proliferation, but also does not cause hypercalcemia.[4]
