Brief Summary in Lay Language

The purpose of this randomized, double-blind, Phase III trial is to determine if the
combination of eflornithine plus sulindac is superior to sulindac or eflornithine as single
agents in delaying time to the first occurrence of any FAP-related event. This includes: 1)
FAP related disease progression indicating the need for excisional intervention involving
the colon, rectum, pouch, duodenum and/or 2) clinically important events which includes
progression to more advanced duodenal polyposis, cancer or death.

Primary Outcome

Secondary Outcome

- presence or absence of an ODC polymorphism; time frame: 24 months from the start of treatment; evaluate the potentially effect modifying properties of an ornithine decarboyxlase (ODC) polymorphism on primary outcome
- excretion of 4 urinary polyamines; time frame: 24 months from the start of treatment; evaluate the potentially effect modifying properties of 4 urinary polyamines on the primary outcome measure
