Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids-Gene Interactions and Heath

Study Description

Role of Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFA)-Gene Interactions in Heath Disparities

A randomized, clinical trial to provide the first comprehensive investigation of the role of fatty acid desaturate (FADS) genetic determinants on PUFA biosynthesis and metabolism as well as levels of inflammatory markers in a controlled dietary environment using two (low and high linoleic acid) parallel diets.
