all-cis-7,10,13,16,19-Docosapentaenoic Acid, also known as DPA, is a fatty acid derived from fish oils that potently inhibits platelet aggregation. DPA has been reported to block the cyclooxygenase pathway and stimulate the lipoxygenase pathway, which results in effective platelet aggregation inhibition. Peripheral blood mononuclear cell research demonstrates that DPA diminishes cyclooxygenase-2 levels intracellularly and inhibits pro-inflammatory prostaglandin E2 production.
