Abstract

Background

With stroke burden increasing, there remains a need to identify therapeutic options that ameliorate the acute insult. There is substantial evidence for a neuroprotective effect of marine-derived n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), associated with better functional outcomes in experimental stroke models.

Objectives

To assess the effects of administration of marine-derived n-3 PUFAs on functional outcomes and dependence in people with stroke.

Our secondary outcomes were vascular-related death, recurrent events, incidence of other type of stroke, adverse events, quality of life, and mood.
