Abstract

Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (ù-3 PUFAs) have been shown to influence serum lipids. However, these effects have not yet been evaluated among patients with spinal cord injury. In this double-blinded randomized clinical trial, 104 subjects with spinal cord injury were randomly assigned to intervention and control group and were followed for 14 months. The treatment group received 2 MorDHA capsules (435 mg of docosahexaenoic acid and 65 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid, daily), and the control group received placebo capsules daily. There were no significant.
