Adherence Dynamics for Whole Food Interventions in African-American Men
African-American (AA) men suffer the greatest proportion of health disparities of any
studied category and adherence to advice among this group has been vastly understudied.
Although there are several ongoing trials for behavioral change, either of diet or
lifestyle, enrollment rates of AA men (< 25%) often provide insufficient numbers to evaluate
adherence issues separately.
Tomatoes, more than lycopene alone, may have beneficial effects on prostate health,
including BPH and prostate cancer. Efficacy trials would require long-term adherence to
high levels of tomato product (TP) consumption.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention
