dietary juniperis virginiensis seed oil decreased pentobarbital-associated mortalities among dba/1 mice treated with collagen-adjuvant emulsions.the propensity of the fatty acid 5,11,14-eicosatrienoic acid (5,11,14-eta) to replace arachidonic acid in cell membranes, and its inability to be converted to bioactive eicosanoids, suggest that it may be useful in the treatment of autoimmune disorders. previously, dietary application of oils extracted from 5,11,14-eta-rich platycladus orientalis delayed the onset of autoimmune disease in new zealand black mice. to gain more knowledge of the efficacy of this fatty acid toward alleviating immunol ...19968816989
dietary platycladus orientalis seed oil suppresses anti-erythrocyte autoantibodies and prolongs survival of nzb mice.dietary fish oils rich in 20:5(5,8,11,14,17) and 22:6(4,7,10,13,16,19) are known to replace arachidonic acid [20:4(5,8,11,14)] and to improve the immunopathology of new zealand mice. however, in humans, similar dietary strategies may be impractical because of the high levels of fish oils required. in contrast, we believe that beneficial effects in humans may be attainable using new exotic fatty acids. toward this end, we have focused on 5,11,14-eicosatrienoic acid [5,11,14-eta, 20:3(5,11,14)]. t ...19948200132
