RATIONALE: Tomato-soy juice may slow the growth of tumor cells. Studying samples of blood and tissue from patients with prostate cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify biomarkers related to cancer. It may also help doctors understand the effect of tomato-soy juice on biomarkers.
PURPOSE: This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects of tomato-soy juice and its effect on biomarkers in patients with prostate cancer undergoing prostatectomy.
- Determine the incidence and severity of toxicity associated with tomato-soy juice in patients undergoing prostatectomy.
- Quantify changes in the content and distribution of soy isoflavones and tomato phytochemicals (carotenoids and polyphenols) to the prostate and correlate tissue content and patterns with blood and urinary concentrations of these compounds and their metabolites.
- Determine blood hormonal patterns and biomarkers of oxidative stress that favor prostate cancer prevention.
- Investigate histopathologic and molecular biomarkers associated with prostate carcinogenesis that may serve as surrogate endpoint biomarkers and provide information regarding their ability to be modulated by the tomato-soy juice.
- Examine several critical histopathologic endpoints, including systemic hormones, cell/matrix interactions in the tumor microenvironment, and molecular processes within the tumor cells (tumor grade and nuclear morphometry, tumor stage, proliferation index, apoptotic index, and angiogenesis/vascularity).
- Determine if consumption of tomato-soy juice alters molecular markers in the human prostate, including neuroendocrine markers such as IGF-I and IGF-BP3, signal transduction markers such as PTEN (phosphatase and tensin homologue) and phospho-AKT, and angiogenesis regulators such as VEGF (vascular epithelial growth factor).
OUTLINE: Patients receive tomato-soy juice daily for 4 weeks. Patients then undergo prostatectomy.
Patients complete urologic symptom and quality-of-life questionnaires.
Blood, urine, and tissue samples are collected for biomarker and pharmacokinetic analysis.

This study is designed to see if drinking a tomato-based vegetable juice will increase skin carotenoids.
This study is a sensory analysis of several different formulations of a novel tomato-soy-arugula seed beverage in men with prostate cancer. Eating a diet rich in a variety of fruits and ve...
This clinical trial aims to test the effects of consuming two types of tomato (one ordinary cherry red tomato containing lycopene, and the other a yellow cherry tomato low in lycopene), on...
No accurate, inexpensive and non-invasive test for gastric cancer screening is currently available. The investigators' recent study identified a1-antitrypsin and other proteins as potentia...

The first article of a two-article series presents pervaporation (PV) of volatile aroma compounds from fruit juice hydrolates (plum, apple, blackcurrant and cherry). The purpose of this research was t...
To determine whether prostate-specific antigen (PSA) could serve as a biomarker for breast cancer.
Raw poultry products often are contaminated with Salmonella and Campylobacter, and these bacteria can be transmitted through meat juice on the packages. An observational study was conducted to assess ...
The viral infection of plants may cause various physiological symptoms associated with the reprogramming of plant gene expression. However, the molecular mechanisms and associated genes underlying dis...
α-defensin is a biomarker which has been described as having a high degree of accuracy in the diagnosis of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI). Current meta-analyses are based on the α-defensin lab...
Techniques which study entities using their topological, geometric, or geographic properties and include the dimension of time in the analysis.
A type of analysis in which subjects in a study group and a comparison group are made comparable with respect to extraneous factors by individually pairing study subjects with the comparison group subjects (e.g., age-matched controls).
A work that reports on the results of a clinical study in which participants may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other types of interventions, but the investigator does not assign participants to specific interventions (as in an interventional study).
Absolute, comparative, or differential costs pertaining to services, institutions, resources, etc., or the analysis and study of these costs.
A set of techniques used when variation in several variables has to be studied simultaneously. In statistics, multivariate analysis is interpreted as any analytic method that allows simultaneous study of two or more dependent variables.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
