  • Studies to determine the mechanisms of the anti-atherosclerotic effects of eicosapentaenoic acid - possible role for endocannabinoids? 

    Michel, Lisa (Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2012-05)
    The ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω-3 PUFAs), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), have been shown to have cardioprotective and antiatherosclerotic actions. While it has been proposed that ω-3 ...
