Abstract

The effects of fatty acids on immune responses have been studied since the early 1970s, but much controversy still remains. The present review examines recent studies in both animals and in humans, and highlights some new and exciting ideas concerning the mechanism by which fatty acids may affect immune responses in both normal and pathological situations, an area which is likely to progress rapidly over the next few years.
