Effects of eicosapentaenoic acid on immune responses and inflammation in humans



Effects of eicosapentaenoic acid on immune responses and inflammation in humans



Health effects of polyunsaturated fatty acids in seafoods: 239-246



Although analyses of the effects of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) on several aspects of immediate hypersensitivity remain to be evaluated, preliminary studies have shown increases in the extent of release of histamine from basophils challenged with goat anti-human myeloma immunoglobulin E, that were significant for the group of patients receiving low-dose, but not high-dose, EPA.
