Omega-3 fatty acids may be effective as a potential therapeutic compound against Parkinson's disease (PD), but research is still in its infancy. Herein, we show that omega-3 fatty acid eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) prevents neurodegeneration induced by Parkinsonian toxin MPP+ in SH-SY5Y cells and primary mesencephalic neurons. Several experiments show that mechanisms of protection are antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, neurotrophic, and antiapoptotic action.
