Oral anticoagulants that are widely used for the treatment of thrombo-embolic disease exert their effect by blocking the recycling of vitamin K. Vitamin K acts as a co-factor in the posttranslational carboxylation of vitamin K-dependent proteins such as osteocalcin and matrix-gla protein. It is important to quantify the dose-response relationship of the interaction between vitamin K and oral anticoagulants and to investigate at what dosage vitamin K will interfere with oral anticoagulants in a clinically relevant way.

max 5 mg per day during 10 weeks
Other Name: sintrom mitis
Dietary Supplement: menaquinone-7
In successive weeks (6 weeks) the dosage is increased over the range 10 µg to 20 µg increasing to 45 µg MK-7 for the final week.
Other Name: MenaQ7
From all K-vitamins, menaquinone-7 has been identified as the most effective cofactor for the carboxylation reaction of Gla-proteins. In this respect it is important to quantify the dose-response relationship of the interaction between oral anticoagulants and menaquinone-7. The primary objective of the study is to demonstrate at what menaquinone-7 intake the vitamin will interfere with oral anticoagulants in a clinically relevant way. Clinically relevant is defined as a decrease in level of anticoagulation that would require a change in oral anticoagulant treatment in order to stay within target levels. Secondary objective of the study is to investigate changes in carboxylation level of osteocalcin and matrix-gla protein after menaquinone-7 supplementation during the oral anticoagulation treatment period. This will demonstrate whether during oral anticoagulation menaquinone-7 will be transported preferentially to the liver or to other target tissues.
