Omega-3 fatty acids have been considered anti-inflammatory lipids based on data from epidemiological studies of Greenland Eskimos whose diet is rich in fish, sources of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Fatty acids from the omega-3 family [mainly the α-linolenic acid, eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA)], as well as those of the omega-6 family [represented mainly by linoleic acid and arachidonic acid (AA)] are essential for the synthesis of eicosanoids, prostagl...
The purpose of the research is to study the effects of increasing dietary omega-3 fatty acid intake symptoms of depression, and brain structure, function and chemistry in adolescent depressed patients 12 to18 year old that are currently not responding to their prescribed antidepressant medication.
Cardiovascular disease and mortality is the largest comorbidity within the dialysis population. Nearly 50% of hemodialysis patients will have congestive heart failure at initiation. According to the most recent United States Renal Data System (USRDS), 40% of incident dialysis patients will have a cardiovascular event or die within the first 9 months of dialysis. It has been postulated that Omega-3 fatty acids could provide beneficial cardioprotection in hemodialysis patients. T...
Published studies on omega 3 fatty acids in the treatment of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia have shown reductions in time to recurrence, a decrease in the positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia, and improvements in CGI, YMRS, and HAM-D scores. The following are the hypotheses: - Omega 3 fatty acids will be superior to placebo in the acute treatment of global autism. - Omega 3 fatty acids will be superior to placebo in improving aggression and ...
Omega-3 fatty acids are provided through dietary intake of fish and seafood. Several dietary supplements containing omega-3 fatty acids are also commercially available. Some studies have described beneficial effects from omega-3 fatty acids, among them are anti-inflammatory, anti-thrombotic, anti-atherosclerotic, anti-arrhythmic, anti-hypertensive and lipid-modulating effects. Other studies have not confirmed these findings. This study will investigate the effects of omega-3 fa...
This study will test the effectiveness of two different kinds of omega-3 fatty acid dietary supplements in treating the symptoms of major depression.
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 trial, patients undergoing elective coronary artery bypass graft surgery with or without valve repair will be treated with omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids perioperatively. The following hypotheses will be tested: 1. omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids reduces the incidence of atrial fibril...
An increasing literature shows that omega-3 fatty acids provide numerous health benefits, including a variety of psychiatric symptoms and disorders including stress, anxiety, cognitive impairment, mood disorders (major depression and bipolar disorder) and schizophrenia. Omega-3 fatty acids may additionally represent a promising treatment strategy in patients with PTSD. Moreover, given its beneficial cardiovascular effects, adjunctive omega-3 fatty acids may also benefit the ge...
