Radhi MM, Hussein BF, Mohamed AA., Effect of Omega 3 fatty acid on lead ion anodic current peak in blood of rabbits measured by cyclic voltammetry, Onl J Vet Res 22 (1):1-7, 2018. One cause of autism is lead contamination in pregnant women or children. We describe effect of lead ions with or without omega 3 fatty acid supplement on anodic peak currents (oxidation) measured by cyclic voltammetry in blood of groups of 5 NZ white female rabbits each, 9 times for 9 weeks. The omega compound reduced (P < 0.05) current oxidation peak of lead ions from 16.8 uA to 2.49 uA and concentration of lead ions in blood 12.138 to 0.353 mg/l. The findings suggest that omega may reduce lead ion oxidation in blood of rabbits.
