ABSTRACT
Oesophageal adenocarcinoma initiation and progression is associated with elevated levels of cyclo-oygenase 2 (COX-2) expression. The use of synthetic COX-2 inhibitors as chemo-preventative therapy is limited by side effects. There is epidemiological and experimental evidence to suggest that certain n-3 fatty acids have a protective effect, which may be mediated through inhibition of COX-2 expression. This article investigate the suppressive effect of EPA on COX-2 gene expression in a human oesophageal adenocarcinoma cell line.
