Eicosapentaenoic acid modulates neutrophil leukotriene B4 receptor expression in cystic fibrosis.

In patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), high intrapulmonary concentrations of the neutrophil chemotaxin leukotriene B4 (LTB4) are associated with specific reduction of LTB4-induced chemotaxis of circulating neutrophils. The chemotactic abnormality is partially corrected by dietary supplementation with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). LTB4-induced neutrophil… CONTINUE READING
