UNLABELLED Arachidonic acid (AA) present in lung and liver immune cell phospholipids is the precursor of eicosanoids that promote neutrophil margination, leading to tissue injury and inflammation. Administration of novel enteral formulations low in linoleic acid (LA) and containing eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) from fish oil and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) from borage oil displaces AA and promotes cell formation of eicosanoids with reduced inflammatory potential. The present study was undertaken… CONTINUE READING
