How do you conduct your studies?

The study we'll be starting [in early 2005] will be looking at saw palmetto and Pygeum africanum in 3,000 to 4,000 men, over six to seven years, to see whether or not compared to a placebo - a pill that looks identical to these compounds but which contains no medicinal ingredients - they actually promote prostate health. In other words, do they improve symptoms, or prevent the development of prostate enlargement, prevent the development of prostate-related symptoms, or perhaps even prevent prostate cancer (though this last one is not one of our primary goals)?
