History: No changes posted
paraoxonase 1 is involved to prevent LDL and HDL oxidation,so increase of it's activity leads to lower risk of coronary heart disease.In postmenopausal women ,we have decrease of paraoxonase1 activity and soy proteins may increase paraoxonase1 activity

Condition Intervention
Procedure: soy consumption

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double-Blind
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Effects of Soy Protein on Serum paraoxonase1 Activity and Lipoproteins in Postmenopausal Women

Further study details as provided by Iran University of Medical Sciences:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • decrease of LDL,increase of HDL,increase of paraoxonase 1

Estimated Enrollment: 42
Study Start Date: January 2006
Study Completion Date: August 2006
Detailed Description:
In a double blind clinical randomised clinical trial with parallel design this study was done.52 postmenopausal women were randomly assigned to 50 g/d soy protein or placebo for 10 weeks.serum lipoproteins and pon1 activity were measured at baseline and 10th week.There were significant increase in PON! activity and significant decrease in LDL-C,LDL-C/HDL-C,TC/HDL-C and TG/HDL-C in soy group compare to placebo group.
