Breast cancer (BC) is the most frequently diagnosed and the second leading cause of cancer related death in Canadian women. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an n-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid (LCPUFA) that has shown efficacy in reducing BC cell growth, however its’ role in prevention of BC or how it improves the efficacy of standard chemotherapy and the mechanisms involved have not been established. The overall objective of this thesis was to determine the efficacy of DHA in prevention and treatment of BC.
