RATIONALE: Natural supplements and a special diet may help rid the body of estrogen and testosterone and may slow the growth of tumor cells.

PURPOSE: The purpose of this randomized Phase I trial is to first IDENTIFY, through laboratory analysis and validating cellular biochemical pathways, and HELP CONTROL, using natural supplements and a special diet work, extemporaneous and environmental (man-made) hormones, hormone impacting compounds and hormone-mimicking compounds that are made outside the body, found in manufactured products or in-taken to the body of cancer patients through life-style, environmental or consumption products. Patients with early-stage or remission stage prostate cancer, breast cancer, or uterine cancer have a much greater sensitivity to these extemporaneous hormonal or hormonal influencing compounds.

Further study details as provided by Dr. Richard Lasker, Brabant Research:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Sequestration and elimination of exogenous estrogens from the body using multiple naturally-occurring micro-trace element compounds [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    lowering body estrogens as related to hormone driven cancer

  • Suppression of proliferation-stimulating activities using naturally-occurring flavonoids [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    suppress cancer cell proliferation

  • Reduction of secondary bonding of TMPRSS2-ERG fusing and negative-bonded environmental estrogen using DPPH radical-scavenging activity [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Monitor levels

  • Maintenance of normal metabolic function using a full diet of specifically grown inclusion produce [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    metabolic function testing

Estimated Enrollment: 300
Anticipated Study Start Date: August 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date: February 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2019 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Arm I
Patients receive oral natural supplements comprising indole-3-carbinol, perillyl alcohol, glucuronic acid, and flavonoids daily for 12 months. Patients also consume whole foods comprising indole-3-carbinol and a diet that eliminates exogenous growth hormones.
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
No supplements are given
Procedure: therapeutic dietary intervention
Given orally daily for 12 months
Arm II
Patients do not receive natural supplements or consume whole foods or a special diet.
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
No supplements are given
