We studied adherence and chemotaxis of peritoneal neutrophils from rats fed a diet providing 0.3, 3 or 10% of the energy as linoleic acid. Whereas neutrophils from the 0.3% group showed biochemical evidence of essential fatty acid deficiency (EFAD), cells from the 10% group (the high essential fatty acid (HEFA) group) exhibited a 38% increase of linoleic… CONTINUE READING
