    ..5 +/- 0.5 fL) and after the cold stimulus (7.5 +/- 0.5 vs. 7.8 +/- 0.5 fL). There was no dose-dependent effect of n-3 PUFAs on platelet activation; rather, 2 g of n-3 PUFAs increased MPV slightly in mildly hypertriglyceridemic subjects. ..

  5. Park Y, Kim M. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations are associated with erythrocyte levels of n-3 PUFA but not risk of CVD. Br J Nutr. 2011;106:1529-34 pubmed publisher
    ..In conclusion, the results of our case-control study suggest that serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels are positively related to erythrocyte n-3 PUFA levels, but are not associated with the risk of CVD in this population. ..

    ..In conclusion, the results of our case-control study suggest that erythrocyte n-3 PUFA may protect against hemorrhagic stroke and ischemic stroke, particularly in the case of small-artery occlusion. ..

    ..Nutritional status, as assessed by BMI and GNRI, was negatively associated with disease severity using ALSFRS-R. The present study suggested that intake of nutrients decreases with disease progression in ALS patients. ..
