Establishing the anti-cancer effects of unsaturated fatty acids and a novel oil on human breast cancer cellsDownload
N-3 and n-6 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic (CLA) acid have been known to inhibit breast cancer cell growth, however, effects on normal cells and of single and mixtures of n-3 and n-6 pathway intermediates have not been thoroughly investigated. The objective of this thesis was to determine...
Vaccenic and elaidic acid modify plasma and splenocyte membrane phospholipids and mitogen-stimulated cytokine production in obese insulin resistant JCR:LA-cp ratsDownload
This study assessed the long-term effects of dietary vaccenic acid (VA) and elaidic acid (EA) on plasma and splenocyte phospholipid (PL) composition and related changes in inflammation and splenocyte phenotypes and cytokine responses in obese/insulin resistant JCR:LA-cp rats. Relative to lean...
