Dietary arachidonic acid protects mice against the fatty liver induced by a high fat diet and by ethanol.

Abstract:

Five groups of NMRI mice were fed ethanol or sucrose in a nutritionally adequate liquid diet for 9 days. The dietary fat consisted of olive oil with the fatty acid composition 18:1 77%, 18:2 10%, 18:0 and 16:0 12%. The ethanol treated groups received 5% w/v ethanol (E) or isocaloric sucrose (S). Two groups (S- and E-) received the diet without supplement. In two groups (S+ and E+) 7% of the fat was exchanged for arachidonic acid (20:4). In a fifth group (IE+) treated with ethanol and arachido...
