Dr. J. Kellogg Parsons, Professor and C. Lowell & JoEllen Parsons Endowed Chair in Urology
At this year's annual meeting of the American Urological Association, in San Francisco, Dr. Parsons presented results of the Men’s Eating and Living (MEAL) Study (CALGB 70807 [Alliance]): A Randomized Clinical Trial of a Diet Intervention in Men on Active Surveillance for Prostate Cancer. This phase III study tested the efficacy of a high-vegetable diet to prevent clinical progression in prostate cancer patients on active surveillance.
Prior to the presentation, Dr. Parsons was featured in a
video interview. He spoke in particular about behavioral change, the feature that distinguishes the study from those focused on complementary medicine or wellness. (Click image to see video.)Read more about the MEAL Study.
