Fish from the aquaculture sector constitutes an increasing part of the fish consumption in Denmark. The most important farmed fish in Denmark is the rainbow trout. Due to limited access of wild fish for the feed production, alternative feeding regimes of vegetable origin such as vegetable proteins and rapeseed oil are used instead of marine feed. This change in feeding regime may affect flesh quality and health and nutritional properties as the content of long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 LCPUFA) will presumably decrease in the meat. The objective of the study is to investigate the effect of vegetable based feed versus marine feed of farmed trout and its effect in healthy men on cardiovascular risk markers associated with the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
In a two month parallel study including 60 healthy men aged 40-70 years, the cardiovascular effect of one daily meal of trout fed with a vegetable based feed are compared with that of trout fed with marine feed (estimated intake of n-3 LCPUFA 2.6 g/day) and a standard Danish diet with poultry. Men are randomised to one of the three groups. Red blood cell fatty acid composition, classical cardiovascular disease (CVD)-risk markers (blood pressure and plasma lipid profile), newer CVD-markers (arterial compliance and plasma markers of endothelial function and inflammation) and plasma proteome analysis are measured at the beginning and end of the intervention period.

We aimed to assess the association of circulating calprotectin, an inflammation-associated protein, with cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk and determine whether it improves risk prediction.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a common diagnosis and is increasing in prevalence worldwide. NAFLD is usually asymptomatic at presentation; progression of the disease is unpredictable, l...

A lipoprotein that resembles the LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS but with an extra protein moiety, APOPROTEIN (A) also known as APOLIPOPROTEIN (A), linked to APOLIPOPROTEIN B-100 on the LDL by one or two disulfide bonds. High plasma level of lipoprotein (a) is associated with increased risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE. It also includes cardiac conditioning and SECONDARY PREVENTION in patients with elevated cardiovascular risk profile.
Measurable and quantifiable biological parameters (e.g., specific enzyme concentration, specific hormone concentration, specific gene phenotype distribution in a population, presence of biological substances) which serve as indices for health- and physiology-related assessments, such as disease risk, psychiatric disorders, environmental exposure and its effects, disease diagnosis, metabolic processes, substance abuse, pregnancy, cell line development, epidemiologic studies, etc.
Measurable biological (physiological, biochemical, and anatomical features), behavioral (psychometric pattern) or cognitive markers that are found more often in individuals with a disease than in the general population. Because many endophenotypes are present before the disease onset and in individuals with heritable risk for disease such as unaffected family members, they can be used to help diagnose and search for causative genes.
A HYDROXYMETHYLGLUTARYL-COA-REDUCTASE INHIBITOR, or statin, that reduces the plasma concentrations of LDL-CHOLESTEROL; APOLIPOPROTEIN B, and TRIGLYCERIDES while increasing HDL-CHOLESTEROL levels in patients with HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA and those at risk for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.
