Does Protein Restriction Inhibit Prostrate Cancer Growth
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01692587|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : September 25, 2012
Last Update Posted : October 17, 2016
The Purpose of the Protein Study is to investigate whether a reduced protein diet can inhibit the growth of prostate cancer in humans.
The Investigators hypothesis is that a reduced protein diet will inhibit expression of genes that are involved in the growth of prostate cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Prostate Cancer||Other: Protein restrictive diet||Not Applicable|
The primary objective of this study is to determine whether or not a low protein diet has an inhibitory effect on prostate cancer cell growth.
The primary outcome measures relative to the investigators primary objectives are:
For Group 1 the expression of genes and proteins of the PI-3K/Akt/mTOR pathway. For Group 2 the PSA values obtained every three months.

|Actual Study Completion Date :||March 2015|
No Intervention: Control
No changes in dietary group
Experimental: Protein restrictive diet
reduced protein diet
Other: Protein restrictive diet
To begin a reduced protein diet
- Group1--Expression of genes and proteins of the PI-3K/Akt/mTOR pathway. Group 2--PSA values obtained every three months [ Time Frame: group 1- (4-6 weeks), group 2 -(52 weeks) ]The investigators will be looking at the increase or decrease of PSA values between control and protein restricted diet participants obtained for the length of study.
