The long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and arachidonic acid (AA) are important components of phospholipid membranes; playing key roles in membrane fluidity, cell signaling, and initiation, sustainment and resolution of the immune response (1). The omega-6 fatty acid AA stored in phospholipid membranes of macrophages and other immune cells serves as a substrate for cyclooxygenase (COX) and lipoxygenase (LOX) enzymatic production of proinflammatory mediators including prostaglandins, leukotrienes, and thromboxanes collectively referred to as eicosanoids (2). These bioactive compounds result in cytokine production and local increase in tissue macrophage infiltration, proliferation, angiogenesis, and resistance to apoptosis (3). Under normal circumstances, the inflammatory response is terminated with the concomitant production of resolvins and protectins from the action of COX and LOX enzymes on the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA (4). ...
Hentriacontanonaene is a long-chain polyunsaturated hydrocarbon produced by numerous gamma-proteobacteria primarily from the marine environment. Hentriacontanonaene was originally isolated from bacterial isolates from Antarctic sea ice cores. All isolated bacteria that produced hentriacontanonaene also produced the polyunsaturated fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Given its polyunsaturated nature it has been proposed that this molecule is produced as part of a response to maintain optimal membrane fluidity. The biosynthesis of this compound was initially identified by its similarity to other known pathways found in bacteria that produce similar long-chain hydrocarbons. Production of monounsaturated and tri-unsaturated long-chain hydrocarbons in various microbial lineages has been attributed to the oleABCD gene cluster. In this pathway two acyl-CoA or acyl-ACP are condensed using a non-decarboxylative Claisen condensation to yield a β-keto-thioester. ...
n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) can prevent life-threatening arrhythmias but the mechanisms responsible have not been established. There is strong evidence that part of the antiarrhythmic action of PUFAs is mediated through inhibition of the Ca(2+)-release mechanism of the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR). It has also been shown that PUFAs activate protein kinase A (PKA) and produce effects in the cardiac cell similar to beta-adrenergic stimulation. We have investigated whether the inhibitory effect of PUFAs on the Ca(2+)-release mechanism is caused by direct inhibition of the SR Ca(2+)-release channel/ryanodine receptor (RyR) or requires activation of PKA. Experiments in intact cells under voltage-clamp show that the n-3 PUFA eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is able to reduce the frequency of spontaneous waves of Ca(2+)-release while increasing SR Ca(2+) content even when PKA activity is inhibited with H-89. This suggests that the EPA-induced inhibition of SR Ca(2+)-release is not dependent on activation

Within the UK, dietary intakes of long chain omega-3 fatty acids are well below current recommended levels for optimal cardiovascular health. Whilst adequate intake of the long chain omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acids (DHA) can be achieved by eating fatty fish at least 1-2 times per week, (equivalent to 250-500mg/d of EPA and DHA) the majority of us fail to achieve such intake. The cardiovascular health properties of fish oil are attributed to its enrichment in EPA and DHA but for vegetarians and vegans, for whom marine sources of omega-3 are not an option, sourcing effective amounts of omega-3 can be challenging.. Many vegetarians and vegans turn to algae sources of preformed EPA and DHA; when it comes to heart health, however, it seems that algae oil may not be the best option. The majority of algae oils are high in DHA with little or no EPA content. Several studies have recently shown that oils that are high in DHA can increase the amount of LDL or bad ...
Speaking of rodents, the soon-to-be published study by Hemant Poudyal, Sunil K. Panchal, Leigh C. Ward and Lindsay Brown from the Universities of Queensland and Southern Queensland in Australia unquestionably belongs into this latter category of "interesting rodent research on the benefits omega-3 fatty acids" (Pudyal. 2012). In order to differentiate the effects of alpha linoleic acid (ALA), the short(er)-chain brother to the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) people often falsely refer to as "fish oil" (while fish oil contains them, the average fish oil cap has ~40% EPA/DHA or 400mg in a 1g gel cap), the scientists assigned 96 male Wistar rats (9-10 weeks old) randomly to one out of 8 different diets ...
Omega-3 acid ethyl esters are the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), i.e., the ester part, attached at one end to an ethanol molecule - the ethyl part. These FDA-approved prescription products are used in combination with changes in diet to lower blood triglyceride levels in adults with severe (≥ 500 mg/dL) hypertriglyceridemia. This was the first fish oil-derived product to be approved for use as a drug. The first approvals came in Europe in 2001. The first approval in the US came in 2004. These prescription products have been tested in clinical trials. In the US, omega-3 ethyl esters are also manufactured and sold as dietary supplements. Omega-3 acid ethyl esters are used in addition to changes in diet to reduce triglyceride levels in adults with severe (≥ 500 mg/dL) hypertriglyceridemia. In the European markets and other major markets outside the US, omega-3 acid ethyl esters are indicated for hypertriglyceridemia as a monotherapy, or in ...

The International Conference on Alzheimers Disease, held this year in Paris, was the site of a presentation by Lori Daiello, PharmD of the finding of differences in brain structure between individuals who supplement with fish oil and those who do not. Fish oil contains the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which have been associated with improved cognitive function.. The current study included 819 participants in the Alzheimers Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI), which conducted periodic brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and memory testing on older adults with normal cognitive function, mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimers disease over a three year period. Dr Daiello and her colleagues compared data obtained from 117 men and women who reported regular fish oil supplement use with data from 702 nonusers.. The team found greater brain volume and better cognitive function over follow-up in fish oil users who did not test positive for the ...
Fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular mortality in chronic kidney disease. Omega-3 (n-3) fatty acid consumption has been inversely associated with FGF23 levels and with cardiovascular risk. We examined the effect of marine n-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and plant-derived alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) on plasma FGF23 levels in post-myocardial infarction patients with chronic kidney disease. In the randomized double-blind Alpha Omega Trial, 4837 patients with a history of myocardial infarction aged 60-80 years (81% men) were randomized to one of four trial margarines supplemented with a targeted additional intake of 400 mg/day EPA and DHA, 2 g/day ALA, EPA-DHA plus ALA, or placebo for 41 months ...

A growing body of evidences report the cardiovascular benefit of fish oil including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in humans and experimental animals. While many studies link EPA to cardiac protection, the effect of EPA on endothelin (ET)-1-induced cardiomyocyte hypertrophy is unknown. On the other hand, the previous study demonstrated peroxisomal proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) -α ligand (fenofibrate) prevents ET-1-induced cardiomyocyte hypertrophy. Though EPA is one of the lignads of PPAR-α, there was no study linking relationship between EPA and PPAR-α on hypertrophied cadiomyocyte. The present study investigated whether ET-1-induced cardiomyocyte hypertrophy could be prevented by the pre-treatment of EPA. Cardiomyocytes were accumulated from neonatal rat heart, cultured and at day 4 of culture, the cardiomyocytes were divided into three groups: control, ET-1 (0.1nM) treated and EPA-pre-treated (10μM) ET-1 groups. A 90% increase in cardiomyocyte surface area, a 75% increase in protein ...
Visfatin is an adipokine highly expressed in visceral AT (adipose tissue) of humans and rodents, the production of which seems to be dysregulated in excessive fat accumulation and conditions of insulin resistance. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), an n−3 PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acid), has been demonstrated to exert beneficial effects in obesity and insulin resistance conditions, which have been further linked to its reported ability to modulate adipokine production by adipocytes. TNF-α (tumour necrosis factor-α) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine whose production is increased in obesity and is involved in the development of insulin resistance. Control of adipokine production by some insulin-sensitizing compounds has been associated with the stimulation of AMPK (AMP-activated protein kinase). The aim of the present study was to examine in vitro the effects of EPA on visfatin production and the potential involvement of AMPK both in the absence or presence of TNF-α. Treatment with the ...
Objective: Previous studies have demonstrated benefits of high-dose long-chain ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (LC ω-3 PUFA) supplements on metabolic risk. Effects of increased dietary ω-3 PUFA, via oily fish and/or plant-derived ω-3 PUFAs, are less clear and may be modulated by the ω-6:ω-3 PUFA of the habitual diet. This study examined the effect on cardiovascular disease risk markers of reducing dietary ω-6:ω-3 PUFA by changes in linoleic acid:α-linolenic acid (LA:LNA) and/or increasing LC ω-3 PUFA. It tested whether decreases in LA:LNA modulate effects of LC ω-3 PUFA. Methods: One hundred forty-two subjects, recruited to a 24-wk randomized study, were assigned to a control group or one of four interventions. Intervention groups received two portions of oily fish (4.5 g eicosapentaenoic acid + docosahexanoic acid) or white fish (0.7 g eicosapentaenoic acid + docosahexanoic acid) per week, and replaced habitual household fats with ones high in sunflower (high LA:LNA) or rapeseed (low LA:LNA)
Background: Elevated activity of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) is known to induce vascular endothelial dysfunction in patients with lifestyle related disease such as diabetes mellitus (DM), hypertension (HT) and dyslipidemia (DL). Because the vascular endothelial dysfunction disturbs an appropriate blood flow to skeletal muscles, it is considered that the oxygen metabolism is impaired in them. Although eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) has been reported to inhibit the RAAS, it is unclear whether EPA ameliorates vascular endothelial dysfunction via the RAAS inhibition resulting in the improvement of muscle oxygen metabolism. This study investigated the effects of EPA on vascular endothelial function and muscle oxygen metabolism during exercise in patients with lifestyle related disease.. Methods: Ninety-two patients (68±8 years, 50 males) were divided into two groups based on the EPA administration in crossover method, after their DM, HT and/or DL were optimally treated. When patients ...

Chemotherapy is indispensible for patients suffering from advanced gastric or colorectal cancer, and also the main therapy for those with end-stage tumor. However, incidence of malnutrition during chemotherapy was reported as high as 60%. The mechanisms include anatomy modification of digestive tract, side effects of chemotherapy such as anorexia, nausea, vomiting, and inflammatory factors generated or induced by the tumor. Malnutrition may lead to discontinuation of the therapy, compromise of the anti-cancer effect, increase of toxicity and mortality. 20%-40% of patients with end-stage tumor ultimately died from malnutrition.. EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid, molecular formula C20H30O2) belongs to ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (ω-3 PUFA). EPA is one of the main constituent of fish oil. EPA decreases LPS-stimulated macrophage production of TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-6, and human B lymphocytes production of IL-10, TNF-α, IFN-γ. EPA can suppress cancer induced lipolysis, and enhanced the inhibitory effect ...

The major findings of the present study are as follows: (1) EPA administration to mice with normalized plasma cholesterol levels induced regression of atherosclerosis in LDLR−/− mice over a 4-week period, and (2) we demonstrated a possible mechanism associated with the regression of atherosclerosis. Increasing IDO expression in DCs is highly associated with regression, and decreasing the number of CD4+ T lymphocytes is another therapeutic candidate to induce atherosclerosis regression.. Epidemiological and clinical evidence suggests an increased intake of EPA protects against death from coronary artery disease.4,5 We demonstrated that additive EPA treatment with statins reduced the frequency of major coronary events without affecting plasma lipid values.6 To provide a molecular mechanism for the epidemiological evidence, several animal studies have demonstrated the antiatherogenic effects of EPA. Matsumoto et al demonstrated that EPA reduced progression of atherosclerotic lesions in ...
The hospitalization rate for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) for people aged ≤50 has remained stable over the past decade. Increased serum levels of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), are associated with a decreased incidence of cardiovascular events and mortality in older patients; however, it is currently unknown whether reduced serum levels of n-3 PUFAs is also a risk factor for ACS in patients aged ≤50 years. We retrospectively reviewed 102 (male/ female 73/29) Japanese ACS patients whose serum levels of EPA/arachidonic acid (AA) and DHA/AA were evaluated on admission. The EPA/AA ratio was the lowest in patients aged ≤50 compared to patients aged 51-74 and ≥75. Pearson correlation analysis showed that early ACS onset was associated with low EPA/AA and DHA/AA ratios, and multiple regression analysis determined that decreased ratios of EPA/AA and DHA/AA, and male sex, current smoker status, increased body mass index and
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), a major ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) found in fish oil is the source of E-series resolvins (RvEs), one of the specialized proresolving mediators (SPMs) that show potent anti-inflammatory and pro-resolving actions (Molfino et al. 2017). The biosynthesis of RvEs occurs mainly during the process of inflammation when endothelial cells interact with leukocytes. EPA, circulating in plasma or released/mobilised from damaged cellular membranes on injury or infection, moves with edema into the tissue sites of acute inflammation where it is converted to exudate RvEs to interact with local immune cells (Kasuga et al. 2008). The initial transformation of EPA by aspirin-acetylated cyclooxygenase 2- and/or cytochrome P450-mediated catalysis can produce stereospecific resolvins (18(R)- or 18(S)-RvEs). Combinations of oxidation, reduction and hydrolysis reactions determine the type of resolvin formed (RvE1, RvE2 or RvE3) (Serhan et al. 2000, 2002, Serhan & Petasis 2011, ...

The review included the current literature published in Pubmed up to March 2011. In humans, fatty acids are a principle energy substrate and structural components of cell membranes (phospholipids) and second messengers. Fatty acids are also ligands of nuclear receptors affecting gene expression. Longer-chain (LC) polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and arachidonic acid are precursors of lipid mediators such as eicosanoids (prostaglandins, leukotrienes, thromboxanes), resolvins and neuroprotectins. Lipid mediators produced by EPA and DHA (LC n-3 PUFA; mainly found in oily fish) are considered as inflammation-resolving, and thus, fish oil has been characterised as antiinflammatory. Recommendations for EPA plus DHA intake from oily fish vary between 250-450 mg/day. Dietary reference values for fat vary between nutrition bodies, but mainly agree on a low total and saturated fat intake. The existing literature supports the protective ...
At 6 months, the n-3 FA supplement group displayed significant increases in CSF (and plasma) eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), DHA and total n-3 FA levels (P < 0.01), whereas no changes were observed in the placebo group. Changes in CSF and plasma levels of EPA and n-3 docosapentaenoic acid were strongly correlated, in contrast to those of DHA. Changes in DHA levels in CSF were inversely correlated with CSF levels of total and phosphorylated tau, and directly correlated with soluble interleukin-1 receptor type II. Thus, the more DHA increased in CSF, the greater the change in CSF AD/inflammatory biomarkers ...

Clinical trials of higher doses of prescription omega-3 fatty acids have had more promising results with regards to prevention of cardiovascular events.. JELIS Trial. The JELIS study of EPA (icosapent ethyl) 1.8 g daily in 18,645 Japanese patients with statin-treated hypercholesterolaemia found a 19% reduction in coronary events, despite minimal triglyceride lowering.5 The lowest event rate was observed in patients with the highest plasma EPA concentrations.5 This result has led to increased use of EPA for cardiovascular prevention in Japan.. REDUCE-IT Trial. A subsequent multinational trial (REDUCE-IT) in patients with high cardiovascular risk and modest hypertriglyceridaemia found that the administration of pure EPA (icosapent ethyl) 4g daily reduced cardiovascular events by 25% with no evidence of an association between triglyceride lowering and clinical benefit.6 There was a higher incidence of atrial fibrillation (3.1% vs 2.1%, p=0.004) and serious bleeding events (2.7% vs 2.1%, p=0.06) in ...
Several studies have associated hs-CRP, which is a marker for inflammation, with an increased risk of several conditions, including heart attack, stroke, sudden cardiac death and artery disease. hs-CRP levels may also help predict heart attack risk in women with the Metabolic Syndrome, which is a cluster of symptoms that include: abdominal obesity, high triglycerides, low levels of "good" or HDL cholesterol, high blood pressure, and high blood sugar. Taking a daily dose of omega-3 fish oil supplement [eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) or docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)] has also been found to lower hs-CRP levels and reduce risk of heart attacks and sudden death from irregular heart rhythms. ...

The safety profile of omega-3 fatty acids is considered to be excellent, and has been recognized as safe (GRAS) by the US Food and Drug Administration when EPA and DHA (docosahexanoic acid) are given together at a dose of 3 grams/day or less. Safety will be monitored by assessing for adverse reactions, measuring vital signs and a variety of laboratory tests including a complete metabolic profile and complete blood count. Efficacy will be assessed by measuring changes in fatty acid profile and or fatty acid ratios.. The goal of this study is to test this EPA oil at doses of 600 mg and 1800 mg of EPA/day as compared to olive oil placebo and a comparator oil providing 600 mg of DHA/day over a 6 wk period. In a parallel arm study design, 120 healthy adults will be randomized to one of four groups (30 in each group) and studied in both the fasting and post-prandial state. ...
The anti-inflammatory effects of n-3 PUFA has been confirmed in prospective epidemiological and in vitro findings. Thus, the anti-inflammatory potential of n-3 PUFA has been put to a rigorous test in clinical trials. However, five studies reported conflicting findings. Maki et al. [78]reported that supplementation of krill oil (216 mg EPA, 90 mg DHA), menhaden oil (212 mg DHA, 178 mg EPA) or control (2 g olive oil) for 4-week to 25 overweight individuals did not alter plasma CRP. In contrary, Kiecolt-Glaser et al. (2012) reported that the consumption of two doses of n-3 PUFA (1.25 vs 2.5 g/day, EPA: DHA ratio is 7:1) for 4 months in 46 abdominally overweight individuals resulted in discernable reduction in plasma TNF-α and IL-6 concentrations [79]. It is plausible that the longer duration with sufficiently powered design enable the detection of positive findings. Furthermore, ideal balance of EPA to DHA may play a critical role as evidence suggests that EPA may be more anti-inflammatory than ...
