n-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids in Obesity
Inflammation in the adipose (fat) tissue is an important condition leading to metabolic derangements and cardiovascular disease in obese patients. n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids exert anti-inflammatory effects and prevent adipose tissue inflammation in rodent obesity. This study tests the hypothesis that n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids ameliorate adipose tissue inflammation in morbidly obese patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A long-chain fatty acid ester of carnitine which facilitates the transfer of long-chain fatty acids from cytoplasm into mitochondria during the oxidation of fatty acids.
Acyl-coa Dehydrogenase, Long-chain
A flavoprotein oxidoreductase that has specificity for long-chain fatty acids. It forms a complex with ELECTRON-TRANSFERRING FLAVOPROTEINS and conveys reducing equivalents to UBIQUINONE.
An enzyme localized predominantly within the plasma membrane of lymphocytes. It catalyzes the transfer of long-chain fatty acids, preferentially unsaturated fatty acids, to lysophosphatides with the formation of 1,2-diacylglycero-3-phosphocholine and CoA. EC 220.127.116.11.
Fatty Acids, Essential
Long chain organic acid molecules that must be obtained from the diet. Examples are LINOLEIC ACIDS and LINOLENIC ACIDS.
Trans Fatty Acids
UNSATURATED FATTY ACIDS that contain at least one double bond in the trans configuration, which results in a greater bond angle than the cis configuration. This results in a more extended fatty acid chain similar to SATURATED FATTY ACIDS, with closer packing and reduced fluidity. HYDROGENATION of unsaturated fatty acids increases the trans content.
The primary objective of this study is to determine if omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids reduce atrial fibrillation and other outcomes after cardiac surgery. In this placebo-controlled t...
The purpose of this study is to continue work on the role of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA)on neurological development in infants supplemented with formula with this type...
We are studying whether the addition of fish oil capsules, containing 2.2 gm of polyunsaturated fatty acids, when added to antiepileptic drugs improve seizure control.
RATIONALE: Polyunsaturated fatty acids are important for normal growth and development. One type, called omega-3 fatty acids (found in fish, fish oil, and some other foods), may affect the...
To determine whether supplementation of omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid conjugated to phosphatidylserine rather than triglycerides (fish oil) could affect Attention-deficit/h...
First syntheses of a deuterium-labeled very long C34-containing polyunsaturated fatty acid, C34:5n5.d(2), and three other unlabeled very long chain C30-32-containing polyunsaturated fatty acids are re...
Background- Marine n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids may reduce coronary mortality. Previous data in relation to nonfatal coronary disease, however, have been inconsistent, which may be explained by the...
The liverwort Marchantia polymorpha L. synthesizes various long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids including arachidonic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid, neither of which is produced by higher plants. H...
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to examine the relationships between gluteal adipose tissue fatty acids and sleep quality parameters in obese patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS)....
Abstract Objective. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a fluctuating disorder of the gastrointestinal tract, characterized by abdominal pain and change in bowel habit. We wanted to investigate subjects...
