This study aims to measure the effect of three different doses of plant stanols in margarine on the cholesterol absorption efficiency in subjects with mildly to moderately increased serum LDL cholesterol concentrations
Serum cholesterol lowering effect of plant sterols is well established and it is also known that plant stanols inhibit the absorption of cholesterol. However, there is lack of dose-response studies directly measuring the cholesterol absorption efficiency during prolonged consumption of plant stanols. Therefore this study aims to measure the cholesterol absorption efficiency at different plant stanol consumption levels using a stable isotope tracer method.
Subjects will be randomized in their study groups that consume 20 g of margarine with different doses of plants stanols (0.8, 1.6 and 2.0g) based on cholesterol absorption efficiency at screening (high and low absorbers randomised separately). Cholesterol absorption test with cholesterol tracer will be conducted twice: at baseline and after 2-3 weeks margarine consumption period.
Cholesterol absorption efficiency will also be examined by indirect method i.e. by following the concentrations of serum cholesterol precursors and plant sterols in blood. In addition serum total, LDL and HDL cholesterol and triglycerides are followed.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Dose Comparison, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Since it is very difficult to have the real thing (Mediterranean diet) we need to find an alternative to reduce cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk in subjects with moderate hypercholesterol...
The purpose of randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was to determine whether yoghurt drink containing 2g plant stanols (3.4g as plant stanol esters) is effective in the contr...
Hypercholesterolemia is one of the most important contributors to atherosclerosis. Whether hypercholesterolemia also affects the retinal microcirculation is unclear.
Familial hypercholesterolemia is a frequent genetic disease associated with a high lifetime risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Statins are the cornerstone of treatment of familial hypercholesterole...
Human induced eutrophication has strongly altered aquatic ecosystems. With increasing eutrophication, plant nutrient concentrations increase, making them more attractive as food for herbivores. Howeve...

The rate at which oxygen is used by a tissue; microliters of oxygen STPD used per milligram of tissue per hour; the rate at which oxygen enters the blood from alveolar gas, equal in the steady state to the consumption of oxygen by tissue metabolism throughout the body. (Stedman, 25th ed, p346)
