Further study details as provided by University of Jena:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Blood lipids (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triacylglycerols) [ Time Frame: change from baseline after 10 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    change from baseline after 10 weeks

    Group 1: placebo Group 2: 0.8 g n3 LC-PUFA/125 g yoghurt per day Group 3: 3 g n3 LC-PUFA/200 g yoghurt per day



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • fatty acid distribution in plasma lipids and erythrocyte membranes, eicosanoids in plasma, production of ex vivo stimulated cytokines by T cells, SNPs on CD36 genotype [ Time Frame: change from baseline after 10 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    change from baseline after 10 weeks

    Group 1: placebo Group 2: 0.8 g n3 LC-PUFA/125 g yoghurt per day Group 3: 3 g n3 LC-PUFA/200 g yoghurt per day



Enrollment: 53
Study Start Date: February 2009
Study Completion Date: April 2009
Primary Completion Date: April 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Dietary Supplement: n3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids
    Group 1 (placebo) Group 2 (0.8 g n3 LC-PUFA/d in 125 g yoghurt) Group 3 (3 g n3 LC-PUFA/d in 200 g yoghurt)
Detailed Description:

Fifty three mildly hypertriacylglycerolemic subjects (TAG ≥ 150 mg/dL (1.7 mmol/L)) participated on the placebo-controlled, double-blind, parallel designed study.

The subjects consumed placebo yoghurt (1), or n3 LC-PUFA-enriched yoghurt (0.8 g n3 LC-PUFA/d (2), 3 g n3 LC-PUFA/d (3)) for 10 weeks.

Blood samples were taken at the beginning and at the end of the period.

Parameters:

  • Blood lipids (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triacylglycerols)
  • Fatty acid distribution of plasma lipids (PL) and erythrocyte membranes (EM)
  • Concentrations of eicosanoids (PGs, HETEs)
  • Production of ex vivo stimulated cytokines by T cells
  • SNPs in the CD36 genotype
  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   25 Years to 75 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • hypertriacylglycerolemic subjects (TAG: ≥ 150 mg/dl (1.7 mmol/l))

Exclusion Criteria:

  • patients receiving blood-diluting and lipid-lowering medications or glucocorticoids
  • patients suffering from gastrointestinal or metabolic diseases (e.g., diabetes mellitus, hyper- and hypothyroidism) and hypercholesteremic patients with familial previous impacts
  • patients taking dietary supplements (e.g., fish oil capsules, vitamin E) or having either known allergies or foodstuff indigestibility
  • further exclusion criteria: smoking, high sportive activity or daily alcohol intake
