Eicosanoids, including prostaglandins and leukotrienes, are biologically active lipids that have been implicated in various pathological processes, such as inflammation and cancer. This Review highlights our understanding of the intricate roles of eicosanoids in epithelial-derived tumours and their microenvironment. The diverse roles that eicosanoids and other bioactive lipids play in these biological phenomena including the participation of lipid oxidation in conversion of procarcinogens, positive and negative modulation of tumor growth, immunomodulation, tissue injury, and yet protection and enhancement of cancer therapy, necessitated scientific.

Breast cancer, the most common cancer in women, could be related to the genotoxic effects of lipid peroxidation products since human breast milk is a rich source of LC-PUFAs,. It also contains xanthine oxidase, an enzyme that oxidizes xanthine by molecular oxygen and produces superoxide in by: 1. Eicosanoids are biologically active C20 metabolites of arachidonic acid, a membrane polyunsaturated fatty acid, and are produced by three primary enzymatic pathways: cyclooxygenase (COX), lipoxygenase (LOX) and cytochrome P (CYP) (Figure ).Regulated by hormonal and paracrine influences, arachidonic acid is released . Biosynthesis of eicosanoids Three separate pathways all starting with a free polyunsaturated fatty acid (, , ) 1) conversion to cyclooxygenase (COX1 or COX2) can be used to form Prostaglandins, prostocyclins, and thromboxane.

MS, also known as syndrome X, or the insulin resistance syndrome, is a combination of medical disorders comprising an array of metabolic risk factors including central obesity, dyslipidemia, hypertension, glucose intolerance, and insulin resistance[].The worldwide prevalence of MS causes lots of health problems not only in the Cited by: 3.   Abstract. BACKGROUND: This study was designed to examine oxidative and antioxidative changes in the red blood cells (RBCs) of patients presenting with glaucomatous degeneration. METHODS: The experimental design was a case-control study of strictly selected patients who required antiglaucomatous surgery during primary open-angle glaucoma despite Cited by: 7. Fatty acid sources "Eicosanoid" (eicosa-, Greek for "twenty"; see icosahedron) is the collective term for straight-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) of 20 carbon units in length that have been metabolized or otherwise converted to oxygen-containing PUFA precursors to the eicosanoids include: Arachidonic acid (AA), i.e. 5Z, 8Z,11Z,14Z-eicosatetraenoic acid is .
