Effect of essential fatty acids on tumor cells


Nutrition 8(5): 343-347
Effect of essential fatty acids on tumor cells
The tumouricidal action of evening primrose oil (EPO), a rich source of linoleic acid and gamma -linolenic acid, in vitro and in vivo is reported. This tumouricidal action of EPO was associated with a 3-fold increase in superoxide generation.
