Polyp Prevention Trial

The primary objective of the Polyp Prevention Trial (PPT) is to determine whether a low fat, high fiber, high vegetable and fruit eating plan will decrease the recurrence of adenomatous polyps of the large bowel. Secondary objectives of the PPT include 1) evaluating the effectiveness of the intervention program with respect to participant achievement of dietary goals; 2) examining the relation of dietary change and biochemical markers in blood; and 3) assessing the impact of the intervention on quality of life indicators.
