Effects of supplemented omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid rich oils on the cardiovascular system of thermally injured rabbits: changes in plasma and platelet fatty acids



Effects of supplemented omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid rich oils on the cardiovascular system of thermally injured rabbits: changes in plasma and platelet fatty acids



Journal of Burn Care and Rehabilitation 16(2 Pt 1): 173



The effects of omega-3 fatty acid rich oil (MaxEPA oil), omega-6 fatty acid rich oil (soybean oil), and a combination of omega-3 and omega-6 oils (MaxEPA oil + soybean oil) on cardiovascular health-related parameters of thermally injured and control (sham) rabbits were determined. Plasma and platelet analyses of burned rabbits fed with MaxEPA oil revealed significantly higher concentrations of eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid + myristic acid. Linolenic acid concentrations declined in animals supplemented with soybean oil + MaxEPA oil. At the end of this study the lowest concentrations of linoleic acid and arachidonic acid were found in the sham and burned groups supplemented with soybean oil + MaxEPA oil. Overall, favorable significant differences in plasma and platelet fatty acids concentrations were found in burned or sham groups supplemented with MaxEPA when compared with those of groups supplemented with soybean oil. These favorable changes in plasma and platelet lipids may have an impact on the risk of cardiovascular disease in thermally injured patients.
