Effect of dietary fish oils on the formation of leukotriene B4 and B5, thromboxane and platelet activating factor by rat leukocytes.

Abstract

1. This study investigates the effect of dietary eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), in the form of 'Max EPA' fish oil, on leukotriene B4 (LTB4) production in ionophore-stimulated rat leukocytes. Male Wistar rats (200-250 g) were fed for 3 weeks on a synthetic chow supplemented with either 10% by weight Max EPA oil or a coconut oil/safflower oil mixture. 2. The… (More)
