What is SELECT?

The Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial is a very important research study taking place in the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada. SELECT was trying to find out if taking selenium and/or vitamin E supplements can prevent prostate cancer. Data from the SELECT trial have now shown that the supplements offered no benefit in the prevention of prostate cancer. However, there are other health questions that SELECT hopes to answer with your continued participation.

SELECT is sponsored by the U.S. National Cancer Institute, a government agency. The study was coordinated by a group of researchers known as the Southwest Oncology Group. More than 35,000 men made the decision to take part in SELECT. The Centralized Follow-up phase of the SELECT trial is being coordinated by the SELECT Data Center in Seattle, WA.
