Updates for December 2012

Dec 1, 2012. In Biochemical PSA Recurrence we added: A randomized trial [PMID: 23162860"] which followed subjects a median 11.2 years found an 8% reduction in cancers among men who took daily multivitamins. An article on page 3 of UStoo newsletter discusses it further. The author points out that although the reduction is modest the fact that its a randomized study rather than observational makes it more reliable. He indicates that the multivitamins used are most similar to children's multivitamins and the actual brand they used currently has a different formulation so that cannot be used to ensure comparability.
