BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) and ratio of plasma eicosapentaenoic acid to arachidonic acid (EPA/AA ratio) are surrogate markers for coronary artery disease (CAD). We aimed to evaluate the effects of a fish-based diet and administration of EPA on baPWV and plasma EPA/AA ratio. METHODS AND RESULTS The changes in baPWV and plasma EPA/AA ratio were compared before and after a 6-month fish-based diet in 191 patients with cardiovascular risk factors. A fish… CONTINUE READING
