Italian readers have chance to take part in trials

Clinical Trials on Diet

patient discussion

Diet and nutrition project

OECI and IEO are collaborating together with FORTH to develop a demonstrator online for social networking amongst Italian cancer patients who want information about diet and nutrition.

Led by Patrizia Gnagnarella and Demos (Demosthenes Akoumianakis) and executed with the help of Professor De Lorenzo and the staff at FAVO (an Italian Cancer Charity encompassing 400+ patient support groups), it asks patients if they would like to take part in a clinical trial.

If yes, they are randomised to receive information about nutrition online, to the same information plus an invitation to an internet space where they can chat with other patients about diet problems and solutions.

All participants are monitored at baseline then after intervention (or not) by specialist online questionnaires.
