Diet of antioxidants and oils improves lung disorder, study shows

study, while more than three times that many on the control diet developed organ failures that were not present when the feedings began.

About half of the people who develop ARDS die from the disorder -- often because of complications in organs other than the lungs. But this diet appears to counteract several of the negative effects of ARDS, by essentially thwarting the efforts of the immune system.

ARDS stems from the body's attempts to protect itself from further injury. Neutrophils -- white blood cells produced by the immune system in response to inflammation -- accumulate in the lungs.

"This protective effort ultimately damages the body," Gadek said. "As a result, the patient gets a massive accumulation of white blood cells in the lungs, and the neutrophils start killing lung cells."

The use of fatty acids prevents the immune system from producing an excessive amount of neutrophils.

This research was supported in part by a grant from Ross Products, Abbott Laboratories. The combination diet used for this study is sold under the brand name Oxepa and is produced by Ross Products.

Gadek conducted this study with researchers from Ross Products Division, Abbott Laboratories in Columbus; the University of Tennessee Medical Center; the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center; the University of California-Davis Medical Center; the SCIREX Corporation; and the Mayo Clinic.
