Clinical Trials Using Broccoli Sprout/Broccoli Seed Extract Supplement

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Broccoli Sprout/Broccoli Seed Extract Supplement. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.

NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.

Trials 1-3 of 3
  • Avmacol for the Prevention of Lung Cancer in Former Smokers

    This phase II trial studies how well Avmacol works for the prevention of lung cancer in former smokers. Former smokers remain at high risk of lung cancer even after they quit smoking for many years. Avmacol is a dietary supplement which contains broccoli seed extracts and broccoli sprout extracts. Avmacol may reverse some of the lung cell changes associated with future development of lung cancer.

  • BroccoMax for the Reduction of Palmitic Acid in Patients with Prostate Adenocarcinoma

    This phase II trial studies whether BroccoMax reduces the serum level of palmitic acid in patients with prostate adenocarcinoma. Sulforaphane is a natural chemical found in vegetables like broccoli and is part of our natural diet. Fatty acids are the building blocks of the fat in bodies and in the food people eat. Increased fatty acid level is a unique feature of human prostate cancer. Sulforaphane may decrease fatty acid levels in prostate cancer.

  • Studying the Effects of a Dietary Supplement, Avmacol, following Curative Treatment in Patients with Tobacco-Related Head and Neck Cancer

    This early phase I trial studies the effects of a dietary supplement called Avmacol following curative treatment in patients with tobacco-related head and neck cancer. Avmacol is composed of broccoli seed, broccoli sprout extract, and vitamin C. This trial may help researchers learn whether Avmacol can increase a type of protein in the body which may protect against damage triggered by injury or inflammation, how the body metabolizes (processes) Avmacol by measuring its byproducts in urine and blood, and whether the immune system can be stimulated by Avmacol by measuring immune cells in the blood.
