Epidemiological studies have shown that omega-3 poly unsaturated fatty acids (omega-3 PUFAs) such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) inhibit the growth of breast cancer. We recently discovered that the CYP-derived omega-3 epoxide of EPA (omega-3-epoxy-EPA) has cytostatic and pro-apoptotic activity, and caused inhibition of cell proliferation. We..
