Tolerability/Palatability of TalityTM Synthetic Meal Replacement in Prostate Cancer
This study will find out if a meal replacement of this type is satisfying and tolerable for men with prostate cancer. Participants will receive meal replacements of TalityTM as their expected sole source of nutrition for 4 weeks. The purpose of the study is to test whether TalityTM Synthetic Meal Replacements are suitable to be used in larger studies of patients with prostate or other types of cancer.
Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
