Effects of Prescription Omega-3 Acids on Glucose and Lipoprotein Lipids in Subjects With Hypertriglyceridemia

2014-08-27 03:17:12 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The objectives of this study are to assess the effects of 4 g/d prescription omega-3 acid ethyl esters (POM3), compared with a placebo, on indices of insulin sensitivity and secretion, as well as aspects of the fasting and postprandial lipid and lipoprotein profiles, in subjects with hypertriglyceridemia.

Description

This trial will utilize a randomized, double-blind, two-period crossover design. At Visit 2 (Week 0), subjects meeting all entry criteria will be randomized to one of two treatment sequences: placebo or prescription omega-3 acid ethyl esters for the first 6 week phase followed by the study product they did not receive during the first phase (prescription omega-3 acid ethyl esters or placebo) for the second 6 weeks.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Salts or esters of carbamic acid, H2NC(=O)OH, or of N-substituted carbamic acids: R2NC(=O)OR', (R' = hydrocarbyl or a cation). The esters are often called URETHANE or urethan, a usage that is strictly correct only for the ethyl esters. (From IUPAC [Internet]. International Union Of Pure And Applied Chemistry; c1995 [updated 2004 Jan 9; cited 2004 May 3]. Available from http://www.chem.qmul.ac.uk/iupac/class/oneN.html#35/).

Methyl, propyl, butyl, and ethyl esters of p-hydroxybenzoic acid. They have been approved by the FDA as antimicrobial agents for foods and pharmaceuticals. (From Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary, 11th ed, p872)

FATTY ACIDS which have the first unsaturated bond in the sixth position from the omega carbon. A typical American diet tends to contain substantially more omega-6 than OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS.

Salts or esters of acetic acid in which the terminal hydrogen atom is replaced by a metal, for instance copper acetate Cu(CH3COO)2, or where substitution is by a radical, for instance ethyl acetate CH3COOC2H5. (From Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary, 12th ed)

Phosphoric acid esters of inositol. They include mono- and polyphosphoric acid esters, with the exception of inositol hexaphosphate which is PHYTIC ACID.
