SELECT Trial Terminated Early

This has nothing to do with hemostasis, but I take an interest because I’ve been a SELECT trial subject for six years.

It turns out there is no protective effect and a slight chance vitamin E is actually associated with prostate cancer and selenium with diabetes. Subjects have been warned by e-mail and phone to stop taking the supplements immediately, and will be monitored for three more years. This has hit the USA news, and here is an LA Times article in case you are interested (I certainly am). Geo.
