The effect of polyunsaturated fatty acids Omega-3 on remission maintenance in patients with Crohn’s Disease

 Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2009; 1

Introduction
Results of recent prospective, randomized studies suggest the efficacy of polyunsaturated ω‑3 (n‑3 LC‑PUFA), inter alia in prevention of cardiovascular diseases and diseases of immune or inflammation origin. Beneficial effect of n-3 LC PUFA is probably secondary to their anti-inflammatory, anti-coagulant, anti-arrhytmic and hypolipodemic properties. Supplementation with polyunsaturated ω‑3 acids reduces arachidonic acid level, leading to inhibition of pro-inflammatory cytokines release and reduced inflammatory cell responses.

DIAGNOSIS OF CYSTIC FIBROSIS

Wstęp
Cystic fibrosis in Caucasian population, is one of the most common genetically determined disease with autosomal recessive type of inheritance. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CFTR protein (Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator), located on the long arm of chromosome 7. This protein acts as a cAMP dependent chloride channel, located in the apical membrane of epithelial cells lining exocrine glands. The result of abnormal functioning or absence of CFTR protein is imbalanced Cl- transport across cell membranes and increased Na+ and water absorption, resulting in increased thickening and viscosity of the mucus.

Abstract
Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA) are essential components of the diet, which cannot be synthesized by the human body. Their basic source are sea fish and seafood. LC-PUFA have anti-inflammatory properties. They also prevent artherosclerosis and support normal development of the vision and central nervous system.
