By 2004-2005, the final results of the Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial should be available. Within several years thereafter, results of the SELECT should be available. The growing list of potential agents for prostate cancer prevention continues to grow and includes COX-2 inhibitors, vitamin D, dietary interventions (soy, isoflavenoids, low-fat diet), and many others. As prospective trials are completed and molecular genetic correlations are developed, it is almost certain that specific recommendations, tailored to the individual patient, will be developed. Ultimately, through these efforts, it can be anticipated that the primary focus for control of prostate cancer will shift from early detection and treatment to prevention.
