AbstractProstaglandins (PGs) are derived from dietary essential fatty acids (EFAs) by relatively short biochemical pathways. PG synthesis can be manipulated by modifying EFA intake. PGs and related compounds of the 1 and 3 series have desirable or neutral actions while those of the 2 series are mixed, some being desirable but others being highly undesirable. Methods for selectively increasing 1 and 3 series products while simultaneously reducing the formation of arachidonic acid derivatives are described.
