Docosahexaenoic Acid Induced Apoptosis In H9c2 Cells And Changed Cardiac Function After Ischemia-Reperfusion InjuryDownload
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains one of the leading causes of death worldwide. As such, a vast amount of research has investigated novel therapies for preventing and/or reducing CVD. Much evidence has demonstrated the importance of dietary composition in increasing or lowering risks of CVD....
Pork is the most widely eaten meat in the world, but typical feeding practices give it a high omega-6 (n-6) to omega-3 (n-3) fatty acid ratio and make it a poor source of n-3 fatty acids. Feeding pigs n-3 fatty acids can increase their contents in pork, and in countries where label claims are...
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of Government-registered blindness in the elderly of the Western world and has two forms: wet and dry. No current AMD therapies are curative, and most are provided after retinal damage from the disease has already occurred (to preserve...
The role of the dietary long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid, docosahexaenoic acid, in prevention of breast cancer and its’ efficacy during neoadjuvant breast cancer chemotherapyDownload
Breast cancer (BC) is the most frequently diagnosed and the second leading cause of cancer related death in Canadian women. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an n-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid (LCPUFA) that has shown efficacy in reducing BC cell growth, however its’ role in prevention of BC...
n-3 fatty acids inhibit transcription of human IL-13: Implications for development of T helper type 2 immune responsesDownload
Fish oil supplementation during pregnancy has been associated with lower levels of cord blood IL-13, suggesting that the administration of n-3 fatty acids may attenuate the development of allergic disease. The present study aimed to investigate the mechanism by which n-3 fatty acid administration...
