In the everyday practice cardiovascular prevention in people at high risk is still unsatisfactory and treatments with documented efficacy are generally under-used.
Polyunsaturated fatty acids of marine origin (n-3 PUFA) are the latest more promising strategy to improve prognosis in these patients.
The Risk and Prevention study combines an epidemiological and an experimental approach in order to:
1. Verify the possibility to optimise cardiovascular prevention in subjects at high risk by planning the intervention with patients and setting individual goals (outcome study)
2. Evaluate the efficacy of a long term n-3 PUFA treatment in reducing the incidence of cardiovascular events, through a controlled, randomised, double blind clinical trial.

Short-chain fatty acids of up to six carbon atoms in length. They are the major end products of microbial fermentation in the ruminant digestive tract and have also been implicated in the causation of neurological diseases in humans.
FATTY ACIDS found in the plasma that are complexed with SERUM ALBUMIN for transport. These fatty acids are not in glycerol ester form.
Organic, monobasic acids derived from hydrocarbons by the equivalent of oxidation of a methyl group to an alcohol, aldehyde, and then acid. Fatty acids are saturated and unsaturated (FATTY ACIDS, UNSATURATED). (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)
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.
Physiologically active compounds found in many organs of the body. They are formed in vivo from the prostaglandin endoperoxides and cause platelet aggregation, contraction of arteries, and other biological effects. Thromboxanes are important mediators of the actions of polyunsaturated fatty acids transformed by cyclooxygenase.
