The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of the consumption of two different dietary patterns (low fat versus Mediterranean Diet) on the incidence of cardiovascular events of persons with coronary disease.

Condition Intervention
Myocardial Infarction
Unstable Angina
Cognitive Decline
Diabetes Mellitus
Metabolic Syndrome
Behavioral: Mediterranean Diet
Behavioral: Low Fat Diet

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Investigator

Further study details as provided by Hospital Universitario Reina Sofia:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Combined apparition of hard cardiovascular events (myocardial infarction, revascularization, ischemic stroke, documented peripheral artery disease or cardiovascular death) after a median follow-up of 7 years. [ Time Frame: Seven Years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of intermittent claudication. [ Time Frame: Seven Years ]
  • Concentration of LDL cholesterol. [ Time Frame: Seven Years ]
  • Atherogenic ratio Total cholesterol/HDL and LDL/HDL. [ Time Frame: Seven Years ]
  • Metabolic control of carbohydrates (assessed by glycemic and insulin responses to intravenous tolerance test to glucose). [ Time Frame: Seven Years ]
  • Blood pressure. [ Time Frame: Seven Years ]
  • Incidence of malignancy. [ Time Frame: Seven Years ]
  • Progression of Cognitive Decline. [ Time Frame: Seven Years ]
  • Extended composite of cardiovascular disease progression [ Time Frame: Seven Years ]
    Incidence of cardiac death, myocardial infarction, angina event, coronary revascularization or cardiac transplant, stroke, symptomatic heart failure, or any other clinical manifestation of cardiovascular event.

  • Extended composite of heart events [ Time Frame: Seven Years ]
    Cardiac death , myocardial infarction , unstable angina , revascularization, heart failure, heart transplantation, cardiac arrest

  • Incidence of type 2 Diabetes Mellitus [ Time Frame: Up to Seven Years ]
  • Incidence of Metabolic Syndrome [ Time Frame: Up to Seven Years ]
  • Composition of the different families of Gut Microbiota [ Time Frame: Up to Seven Years ]
    Changes in the percentage of different families of Microbiota will be analyzed during the study

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Endothelial function (Flow mediated dilation) [ Time Frame: Up to Seven Years ]
    Endothelium response to ischemia in the brachial artery. Area under the curve, flow peak and time to maximum flow will be performed

  • genetics [ Time Frame: Up to seven years ]
    Influence of genotype in the development of type 2 dm, at 1, 2, 4 and 7 years

  • postprandial lipaemia [ Time Frame: Up to seven years ]
    Influence of metabolic phenotypes and diet on postprandial lipemia

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Low Fat Diet
Dietary Intervention with a Low fat diet: <30% fat (12% monounsaturated fatty acids; 6-8%polyunsaturated fatty acids; <10% saturated fatty acids)
Behavioral: Low Fat Diet
Low fat diet: <30% fat (12% MUFA; 6-8%PUFA; <10% SAT)
Other Name: Dieta Baja en grasas
Experimental: Mediterranean Diet
Dietary Intervention with a Mediterranean Diet: 35-38% fat (22% monounsaturated fatty acids; 6% polyunsaturated fatty acids; <10% saturated fatty acids).
Behavioral: Mediterranean Diet
Mediterranean Diet:35-38% fat (22% MUFA; 6% PUFA; <10% SAT).
Other Name: Dieta Mediterranea

Detailed Description:

Randomized clinical trial involving 1002 patients with coronary disease that are undergoing one of two diets in a randomized design (two groups; Mediterranean Diet 502 patients, Low Fat 500 patients) for 7 years. The two diets are: a)Low fat diet: <30% fat (12-14% monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA); 6-8% polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) ; <10% SAT) and b) Mediterranean Diet: >35% fat (22% MUFA; 6% PUFA ; <10% SAT).

Primary Objective:

Combined apparition of hard cardiovascular events (myocardial infarction, revascularization, ischemic stroke, documented peripheral artery disease or cardiovascular death) after a median follow-up of 7 years.
