Exacerbated inflammation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of ischemic renal injury (IRI), which is the major cause of intrinsic acute renal failure. Clinical studies suggest that long-term treatment with omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) improves renal function and lowers the risk of death or end-stage renal disease. Docosahexaenoic acid, a principle omega-3 PUFA of fish oils, is of particular interest as it is found in most human tissues and is converted to protectin D1… CONTINUE READING
