Omega-3 fatty acids: essential fatty acids with important biological effects, and serum phospholipid fatty acids as markers of dietary omega 3-fatty acid intake



Omega-3 fatty acids: essential fatty acids with important biological effects, and serum phospholipid fatty acids as markers of dietary omega 3-fatty acid intake



American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 57(5 Suppl.): 801s-805s; Discussion 805s-806



Serum phospholipid eicosapentaenoic (PL-EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (PL-DHA) values are associated with the dietary intake of omega 3 fatty acids. PL-EPA and PL-DHA values measured 4 years apart in 211 diabetic patients were highly correlated, with Spearman correlation coefficients of 0.49 (P = 0.0001) and 0.64 (P = 0.0001), respectively. PL-DHA was positively associated with Bayley psychomotor and mental developmental indexes (PDI and MDI, respectively) in preterm infants.
