The study patients will include 50-60 voluntary patients from the Helsinki Univ. Central Hospital, who will undergo aortic valve surgery. The patients will be randomized into plant sterol (E), plant stanol (A) and control (C) groups. Patients in the E and A groups will be asked to consume daily ...
Isolated minority communities in China use traditional plant-based methods of mosquito control. This study is evaluating 4 plants used in this way by monitoring mosquitoes entering houses on nights when the plants are being used in this way. A blind, placebo controlled study design will monitor plant use and record mosquito species / numbers caught in CDC light traps indoors over 3 months.
This is a randomized, double-blind, single-center, two-arm, placebo-controlled clinical trial that examine the effect of the consumption of a plant sterols-enriched low-fat milk. Half of the participants will consume of 1.5g of plant sterols daily as provided by two servings of the plant sterols-enriched low-fat milk product for 3 consecutive weeks, while the other half will consume placebo low-fat milk.
This study investigates the effect of margarines supplemented with plant sterol esters on serum and cardiovascular tissue concentrations of plant sterols. We assume that consumption of margarine supplemented with plant sterol esters increases serum and cardiovascular tissue concentrations of plant sterols (sitosterol; campesterol).
Safety and Immunogenicity Study of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Biologicals' Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) Vaccine (209762) Compared to Merck & Co., Inc.'s MMR Vaccine in Healthy Children 12 to 15 Months of Age
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of GSK Biologicals' trivalent MMR (Priorix®), comparing it to Merck's MMR vaccine (M-M-R®II), which is approved for use in the US in healthy children 12 to 15 months of age.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of a diet supplementation with plant sterol esters on serum lipids, plant sterol concentrations and monocyte subpopulations.
The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of dietary plant and animal proteins on gut metabolism and markers for colorectal cancer as well as blood protein metabolites and markers for type 2 diabetes in healthy adults. The study participants will be stratified into three groups with different protein composition in diets: 1) animal 70%/plant 30%; 2) animal 50%/plant 50% and 3) animal 30%/plant 70%. The participants will get part of their diet as ready foods or raw mat...
The study is a randomised, double-blind, placebocontrolled, parallel dose-response study with four study arms. Sixty subjects will be randomly allocated to consume study products containing varying amounts of plant sterol (PS)oxidation products (POP) or placebo for 6 weeks.
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
The absorption kinetics of polyphenols in angel's plant (Angelica keiskei), which is a dark green leafy vegetable rich in antioxidant nutrients, will be determined in older adults in this pilot study.
The effect of a diet free from animal-sourced nutrients on body composition in weight reduction programs is not well established. In this non-randomised free living interventional case-control study, the investigators will document the effects of a 10-week, low-fat, plant-based diet supplemented with two daily plant-based meal replacements on body composition indices measured with bioimpedance analysis. Control subjects will be exposed to weekly lectures on the rationale and ex...
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 control of blood cholesterol level in subjects with LDL-cholesterol level 130-159mg/dL.
Background of the study: Plant sterols can play an important role in lowering plasma cholesterol. The extent to which plant sterols can reduce plasma cholesterol levels depends on the intake scenario. We suggest that the difference in these effects depends on gastric emptying and bile secretion. Objective of the study: The aim of this study is to gain insight in the mechanisms that may be involved in the effects of plant sterol drinks on gastric emptying and gallbladde...
The incidence of chronic degenerative diseases, especially cardiovascular disease (CVD), is high world over and especially in India. High blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels are known to be important risk factors for CVD. There is a strong body of evidence for the beneficial effects of plant sterols on blood total and LDL-cholesterol and omega-3 fatty acids from fish on blood triglycerides. However, the combined benefits of consuming both plant sterols and omega-3 fatty a...
The aim of this study is to see if plant sterols are effective at lowering blood cholesterol levels in Chinese people. The study will be done with Chinese colleagues based at Peking University in Beijing with whom our Institute has a well-established collaboration. The study will be randomised, placebo-controlled and double-blind. The total study period for participants will be an average of seven weeks comprised of a two-week placebo run-in period and a five-week follow-up ...
The present study's goal is to identify a genetic basis for variations in responsiveness to plant sterol use, and elucidate which components of control of cholesterol metabolism associate with the genetic factors identified. The long term target is to contribute to a growing database that will be used in conjunction with rapid genotyping assays to allow future practitioners to determine if plant sterol intervention will be an effective lipid-lowering therapy in at-risk patients...
Darmstadt, Germany, June 17 2010 - Merck Serono, a division of Merck KGaA, and its U.S. affiliate, EMD Serono, Inc. today announced that they are resuming their Stimuvax® (BLP25 liposome vaccine)* clinical program in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) which includes the Phase III studies, START and INSPIRE. The treatment and enrollment in these studies will restart after approval by the local regulatory authorities and ethics committees. More information c...
The effect of a diet free from animal-sourced nutrients on a variety of risk factors for chronic non-communicable diseases in weight reduction programs is not well established. In this non-randomised interventional study, the investigators will document the effects of a low-fat, plant-based diet supplemented with two daily plant-based meal replacements on serum LDL cholesterol as a primary end-point and total cholesterol, triglycerides, serum fasting glucose, serum urate, serum...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of Kinrix when co-administered with varicella (Varivax® [varicella virus vaccine live], Merck and Company) and MMR vaccines, compared to Kinrix co-administered with MMR vaccine alone. Both Kinrix and the second dose of Varivax are indicated in children 4-6 years of age, and there is great potential for the vaccines to be given concurrently. The aim of this trial is to demonstrate that co-administered Varivax...
This is a local, single-center, two-arm, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial that examines the LDL-C-lowering effect of the consumption of a soya beverage enriched with plant sterol for 3 weeks. This study also examines if there is other health-benefits by consuming the plant sterols fortified soya beverage in terms of serum total triglyceride, total and HDL cholesterol, other cardiometabolic risk factors and musculoskeletal-related traits including hand...
The objective of the present Mitacs project is to determine and utilize information on associations between genetic predisposition pertaining to multiple single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and the degree of responsiveness of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) lowering to plant sterols (PS). The predictive potential of SNPs associated with PS responsiveness will be evaluated using a randomized human intervention trial examining responsiveness of lowering blood LDL-C...
The purpose of the study is to investigate the cholesterol lowering efficacy of a cereal based snack bar with added plant stanol ester when used between meals as part of a habitual diet by subjects with mild to moderate hypercholesterolemia.
This randomized, controlled trial aims to elucidate the mechanisms by which a plant-based dietary intervention causes weight loss. Using a low-fat, plant-based diet for 16 weeks, along with an untreated control for comparison, the study will measure changes in insulin sensitivity, postprandial metabolism, and intracellular lipid, and assess their associations with changes in body weight.
