Further study details as provided by New York Downtown Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine if oral DIM is effective in promoting the regression of CIN in women

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To correlate the response to DIM with HPV colonization
  • To assess for any adverse effects of oral DIM in women

Estimated Enrollment: 62
Study Start Date: September 2000
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2005
Detailed Description:
To determine if the use of oral Diindolylmethane (DIM), a marketed cruciferous vegetable based dietary supplement (BioResponse-DIM®), is associated with the regression of cervical dysplasia in otherwise healthy women. Additionally, the study aims to see how the use of the BioResponse-DIM supplement correlates with cervical HPV colonization, and to asses the tolerability of daily DIM supplementation
