Eicosanoids are involved in the mediation of inflammatory and allergic processes in the gut. In order to evaluate a potential beneficial effect of the diet, the effect of mediators of inflammation and of a sensitization against egg albumin on anion secretion across the colon was tested using rats fed on a diet containing 15% fish oil as compared to 15% olive oil as donor animals. Feeding on a fish oil diet significantly reduced the response to bradykinin or phospholipase C, known agonist of… CONTINUE READING
