DHA Study Planned


DHA Study Planned

COLUMBIA, Md.--A pilot study is being planned to test preliminary data on docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) as a possible preventive treatment for breast cancer. Researchers at Yale University will be conducting research on DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid normally found in breast milk.

A nine-month study is planned to investigate the possibility of a larger, longer study. Previous research found that DHA may be able to suppress breast cancer in mice. The study will be funded by Martek Biosciences Corp. For more information, call Yale's press office at (203) 432-1326.
