Resumo THE effect of an n-3 (fish) and n-6 (soybean) fatty acid-rich diet on carrageenin paw oedema in rats, and the participation of adrenal gland, corticosterone and alpha(2)-macroglobulin (alpha(2)-M) in this process were studied. A significant inhibition of carrageenin oedema was observed not only in rats fed a diet rich in fish oil but also in the soybean group. alpha(2)-M was not detectable before carrageenin injection, suggesting that this putative anti-inflammatory factor does not participate in the observed anti-inflammatory effect. Corticosterone levels were higher in fat-fed than in control rats, before carrageenin stimulus and adrenalectomy abolished the anti-inflammatory response in fat-fed animals, showing the important role of the adrenocortical hormones in this process.
