Agent: Diindolylmethane (DIM)
Contact: Jason Gee, MD

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential of DIM as a chemopreventive agent for prostate cancer. Men with a diagnosis of prostate cancer who are considering surgical removal of the prostate gland (prostatectomy) may be eligible to participate in this study. Those taking part in the study will receive either DIM or placebo for several weeks immediately before prostate surgery. The study is being conducted at the University of Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Center and several other study sites through the University of Wisconsin Clinical Trials Consortium. This study is now closed to accrual.
