Some expert nutrition committees have recommended LCPUFA supplementation for lactating women. As the n-3 PUFA have been recognized as regulatory agents for cytokine and eicosanoid production it is important to define the effect such dietary changes have on the immunomodulating potential of human milk The aim of this study was to examine the effects of dietary docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) supplementation on the human milk cytokines IL-6, TNFα, TGFβ1 and TGFβ2.
