PURPOSE: Randomized phase II trial to determine the effectiveness of soy protein supplement in preventing prostate cancer in patients who have elevated PSA levels.
- Compare the reduction in the rate of prostatic cellular proliferation in patients with an elevated PSA (5 to 10 ng/mL) and a negative biopsy for prostate cancer when treated with daily soy protein supplements vs placebo.
- Compare the effect of these regimens on additional biomarkers of prostate cancer (PSA, high-grade prostate intraepithelial neoplasia, induction of apoptosis, sex steroid receptor expression, and loss of glutathione S-transferase-pi) in these patients.
- Compare the effect of these regimens on quality of life, including urinary and sexual function, in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to race (Caucasian vs African American). After 2 weeks of daily oral placebo, patients are randomized to 1 of 2 arms.
- Arm I: Patients receive oral soy protein supplement daily for 12 months.
- Arm II: Patients receive oral placebo daily for 12 months. Quality of life is assessed at baseline and at 6 and 12 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 160 patients (80 per arm) will be accrued for this study within 12 months.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Prevention

OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate migraine prophylaxis with soy protein isolate in patients with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. II. Assess whether soy protein isolate reduces the frequenc...
RATIONALE: Dietary supplementation with soy may keep prostate cancer from growing in patients planning to undergo surgery. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying a soy supple...
RATIONALE: Eating a diet high in soy foods may slow the progression of some types of cancer. Isoflavones are compounds found in soy food that may slow the growth of prostate cancer cells a...
RATIONALE: The amount of fat, fiber, soy, fruits, vegetables, vitamin E, and green tea in the diet may affect androgen metabolism in men. This may affect PSA level in patients with prostat...
RATIONALE: Soy protein/isoflavones and venlafaxine may help relieve hot flashes in patients receiving hormone therapy for prostate cancer. It is not yet known whether soy protein/isoflavon...
The established methods for detecting prostate cancer (CaP) are based on tests using PSA (blood), PCA3 (urine), and AMACR (tissue) as biomarkers in patient samples. The demonstration of ERG oncoprotei...
We previously found that inflammation in benign prostate tissue is associated with an increased odds of prostate cancer, especially higher-grade disease. Since part of this link may be due to genetics...
We previously identified a protein tumor signature of PTEN, SMAD4, SPP1, and CCND1 that, together with clinical features, was associated with lethal outcomes among prostate cancer patients. In the cur...
For six decades, it has been a part of the conventional medical wisdom that higher levels of testosterone increase the risk of prostate cancer. This belief is mostly derived from the well-documented r...
Sineoculis homeobox homolog 1 (Six1), normally a developmentally restricted transcriptional regulator, is frequently dysregulated in mutiple cancers. Increasing evidences show that overexpression of S...
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.
A synthetic retinoid that is used orally as a chemopreventive against prostate cancer and in women at risk of developing contralateral breast cancer. It is also effective as an antineoplastic agent.
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
Tumors or cancer of the PROSTATE.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...

Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
