Abstract

Anti-inflammatory roperties of LC-PUFA fatty acids DHA and EPA  are very well known in humans. In our study we assessed the interrelationships between breastmilk IL-6, Leptin and breastmilk fattyacids, including PUFAs between women who used omega-3 during pregnancy and who did not, .Lactating women and their babies were involved in the study. Part,c,pants were robustly phenotyped along with their infants at 4-12 weeks postpartum. IL-6, Leptin fatty acids were evaluated by ELISA and GC-FID.
