Abstract

The Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial is a randomized double blind chemoprevention trial of 18,882 men. It is designed to test the difference in the histologically proven prostate cancer prevalence between a group of participants given finasteride and another given placebo for 7 years. We present an overview of the study design, details of the administrative structure of the study and a description of the successful implementation of the accrual phase.
