  Purpose
In this study, the effects of dietary intake of cold-pressed turnip rapeseed oil (CTPRO) and milk fat are compared in men with metabolic syndrome having already participated in HMS-02 study.

Condition Intervention
Metabolic Syndrome Dietary Supplement: Cold-pressed turnip rapeseed oil (CTPRO) Dietary Supplement: milk fat

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Hämeenlinna Metabolic Syndrome Research Program (HMS): Effects of Dietary Cold-pressed Turnip Rapeseed Oil and Milk Fat on Serum Lipids, Oxidized LDL, Arterial Elasticity and Platelet Function

Further study details as provided by Central Hospital of Kanta-Hame:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Circulating lipids [ Time Frame: 6 to 8 weeks ]
    At the end of both 6- to 8-week dietary periods, fasting values of circulating lipids including oxidized LDL are determined

  • Platelet function [ Time Frame: 6 to 8 weeks ]
    At the end of both 6- to 8-week dietary periods, platelet function is determined

  • Glucose tolerance [ Time Frame: 5 hours ]
    During a 5-hour oral glucose-fat tolerance test the area under curve of plasma glucose and insulin concentration is determined


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Arterial elasticity [ Time Frame: 6 to 8 weeks ]
    At the end of both 6- to 8-week dietary periods, arterial elasticity is determined

  • Serum triglyceride AUC [ Time Frame: 5 hours ]
    During a 5-hour oral glucose-fat tolerance test the area under curve of serum triglyceride concentration is determined

  • Platelet function [ Time Frame: 5 hours ]
    During a 5-hour oral glucose-fat tolerance test the platelet function is determined


Enrollment: 43
Study Start Date: September 2004
Study Completion Date: June 2008
Primary Completion Date: April 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Rapeseed oil Dietary Supplement: Cold-pressed turnip rapeseed oil (CTPRO)
  1. In the dietary period of 6 to 8 weeks: CTPRO 37 ml/day.
  2. In the 5-hour oral glucose and fat tolerance test: glucose and CTPRO.
Other Name: Virgino
Active Comparator: Milk fat Dietary Supplement: milk fat
  1. In dietary period of 6 to 8 weeks: 37.5 grams of butter.
  2. In the 5-hour oral glucose and fat tolerance test: glucose and cream
Other Name: Valio butter

Detailed Description:

This open and balanced cross-over study consists of two dietary treatment phases (either Virgino (R) CTPRO or butter) for 6 to 8 weeks. They are separated from each other with an eight-week washout period. At the end of both periods and 12-hour fasting an oral glucose-fat tolerance test is carried out. Except glucose, the test consists cream (after the butter phase) and CTPRO (after the CTPRO phase).

Otherwise, the subjects (n=43) are asked to maintain their normal dietary habits.
