Change in ARA metabolites during 4-week supplementation and 4-week washout. (A) Urinary 11-dehydro TXB2, (B) urinary 2,3-dinor-6-keto- PGF, (C) urinary tetranor-PGEM, (D) plasma PGE2 and (E) plasma LXA4. Placebo, low-ARA and high-ARA groups are indicated by open circles, closed diamonds and closed squares, respectively. Values are means ± SD (n = 20 (placebo) and n = 22 (in each low- and high-ARA group)). *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 vs. baseline in group (ANOVA and Dunnett's test). Values without a common letter are significantly different at p < 0.05 (ANOVA and Tukey-Kramer test).
