5(Z),11(Z),14(Z)-Eicosatrienoic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid found in various natural sources including maritime pine (Pinus pinaster) seed oil (MPSO), gymnospermae leaves and seeds, and freshwater gastropods.1,2,3 A diet containing MPSO lowered high-density lipoprotein and ApoA1 levels in transgenic mice expressing human ApoA1. MPSO was found to diminish cholesterol efflux in vitro.1 5(Z),11(Z),14(Z)-Eicosatrienoic acid methyl ester, when topically applied, reduces inflammatory processes, potentially by displacing arachidonic acid from phospholipid pools and reducing downstream inflammatory products such as prostaglandin E2 and leukotrienes.4
