Background: Data on the association of n 3 fatty acid content in serum lipids with mortality in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) are limited. Objective: We hypothesized that a high proportion of n 3 fatty acids in serum lipids would be associated with reduced risks of death and coronary events in patients with established CAD. Design: We measured dietary intakes via food records and the fatty acid composition of serum cholesteryl esters (CEs) in 285 men and 130 women with CAD (x age… CONTINUE READING
