This study examined the effects of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) on cardiovascular responses to isolation stress in male rats. Group-reared rats, on a fat-free diet, were given olive oil (OL), or EPA in OL (1.47 X 10(-7) mol/hr) via 8 week osmotic pumps, or a dummy pump (DUM), 2 weeks prior to a 4 week isolation period. Blood pressure (BP), heart rate, and… CONTINUE READING
