The daily oral administration of 3 ml of two oils (So‐5407 and So‐1129) containing essential fatty acids (EFAs) for 16 weeks resulted in a transient increase in cell proliferative activity in the skin of female Large White pigs. The So‐5407 oil contained 7% gamma‐linolenic acid (GLA) whereas So‐1129 was an oil of similar composition, but with no GLA.
