Erythrocyte fatty acid profiles can predict acute non-fatal myocardial infarction.

Br. J. Nutr. 2009 Nov;102(9):1355-61.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

The risk of CHD has been linked to n-3 and trans-fatty acids. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the hypothesis that lower n-3 fatty acids and higher trans-fatty acids in eryth...-fatty acids in erythrocytes are associated with a decreased risk of MI. Furthermore, fatty acid profiles improve discrimination of acute non-fatal MI compared with established risk factors.
