In vivo anti-tumor effects of DHA and DHA N/O/W emulsion on growth of H22tumor in ICR mice (n = 10)
Group Dose (mg/kg) Body weight (g) (initial/endpoint) Tumor weight (g) TIR (%)
NS control - 21.9 ± 1.3/27.8 ± 2.2 1.4 ± 0.4 -
DHA solution 11.25 21.2 ± 1.2/25.3 ± 1.7 1.1 ± 0.3 21.5*
DHA N/O/W (low dose) 11.25 22.3 ± 0.9/28.6 ± 2.3 1.1 ± 0.2 23.0*
DHA N/O/W (high dose) 45.00 21.7 ± 1.1/26.3 ± 3.8 0.7 ± 0.2 51.8**

Note: *P < 0.05 and **P < 0.01 vs. N.S. control.

#P < 0.05 vs. DHA solution or low-dose group.
