ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01099501
First received: April 1, 2010
Last updated: November 21, 2013
Last verified: October 2013
  Purpose

This is a single-center, prospective, randomized, comparative, double-blind controlled clinical study mend to assess the effect of enteral feeding with Oxepa (a fish oil-based nutrition), compared to an isocaloric control, on oxygenation and clinical outcomes in mechanically ventilated trauma patients.

The study population will be adults admitted to the ICU due to multiple-trauma or head trauma as a result of a gun shut, motor vehicle accidents, fall, workplace accident etc.


Condition Intervention Phase
Multiple Trauma
Head Trauma
Dietary Supplement: Oxepa (enteral nutrition formula, ABBOTT), at a dose determined by a patient's energy expenditure and tolerance of enteral feeding.
Dietary Supplement: oxepa
Dietary Supplement: Control group

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Oxygenation (PO2/FIO2 ratio) [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PO2/FIO2 ratio; assessed by measuring arterial blood gases (AVL Omni Technology, Graz, Austria) and ventilator settings (10)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • TNF-α, CRP (markers of inflammatory response) [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Concentration of circulating inflammatory markers: TNF-α, CRP concentrations

  • Fatty acid composition of RBC phospholipids, including n-3:n-6 ratio (markers of n-3 PUFA incorporation into blood cell membranes) [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Fatty acid composition of RBC membrane (thin liquid chromatography)
