Dr. Barry Sears Dr. Sears Comments:

Giving intravenous fish-oil emulsions increases the likelihood of getting omega-3 fatty acids into tumor cells since the vascular structure surrounding tumor cells is leakier.  This is an old trick I used 40 years ago with intravenous drug-delivery systems for cancer drugs.  The higher the omega-3 fatty acid concentration in the cell, the more likely the generation of resolvins that can remove the tumor debris caused by the cancer drug.  The end result is a better quality of life.
