Mead acid (5,8,11-Eicosatrienoic acid), an unsaturated (Omega-9) fatty acid, is an indicator of essential fatty acid deficiency[1].

In Vivo

Mead acid (MA) suppresses KPL-1 human breast cancer cell growth in culture with an IC50 value of 214.2 µM (65.7 µg/mL) for 72 h and significantly suppresses KPL-1 tumor growth and regional (axillary) lymph node metastasis in female athymic mice[1]

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.
