Inflamed rats with adjuvant-induced polyarthritis showed similar incorporation of dietary eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) into peritoneal exudate cell (PEC) membrane phospholipids compared to pair fed non-inflamed control rats. Arachidonic acid (AA) content was similar in PEC phospholipids of inflamed and control rats whereas the linoleic acid content was consistently higher in inflamed rats.
