Dear David & Support Group,

I was wondering if it is possible to distribute the attached flyer to the support group or include in your member communication?

Metformin study patient information sheet

Howard Gurney and myself work with the metabolic research unit at Blacktown focusing on research on hormone therapy in prostate cancer, and how side-effects can be minimised.

We are looking for volunteers for the attached study, which is evaluating potential anti-tumour effects of metformin (a diabetes medication).

Eligible men are –  on hormone injections for at least 6 months –  not on hormone tablets or chemotherapy – do not have diabetes.
