|Ductal Breast Carcinoma in Situ Lobular Breast Carcinoma in Situ Male Breast Cancer Stage IA Breast Cancer Stage IB Breast Cancer Stage II Breast Cancer Stage IIIA Breast Cancer Stage IIIB Breast Cancer Stage IIIC Breast Cancer||Dietary Supplement: omega-3 fatty acid Other: placebo Other: laboratory biomarker analysis||Not Applicable|
I. To determine if omega-3 dietary supplementation (omega-3 fatty acid) results in higher polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) levels in surgical specimens of normal and malignant breast tissue in women who took omega 3 tablets in comparison to those who took placebo.
II. To determine if omega-3 dietary supplementation results in higher PUFA levels in plasma and red blood cells in women who took omega 3 tablets in comparison to those who took placebo.
III. To determine if omega-3 dietary supplementation affects the metabolites of omega-3 and omega-6 PUFA in surgical specimens of malignant and normal breast tissue in comparison to controls.
IV. To determine if women who take omega-3 dietary supplementation have less proliferation and greater apoptosis in malignant breast tissue in comparison to women who take placebo.
OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
ARM I: Patients receive omega-3 fatty acid orally (PO) daily for 7-14 days.
ARM II: Patients receive placebo PO daily for 7-14 days.

Experimental: Arm I (omega-3 fatty acid)
Patients receive omega-3 fatty acid PO daily for 7-14 days.
Dietary Supplement: omega-3 fatty acid
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
Placebo Comparator: Arm II (placebo)
Patients receive placebo PO daily for 7-14 days.
Other Name: PLCB
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
- PUFA levels in normal and metastatic breast tissue and in plasma and red blood cells [ Time Frame: At time of surgery ]Analysis of variance (ANOVA) will be used to assess the effect of omega-3 dietary supplementation on PUFA levels separately in normal and malignant breast tissue. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) will be used to assess the omega-3 effect in plasma and red blood cells (RBC), where the baseline levels of the PUFAs will be included as covariates.
- Metabolites of omega-3 and omega-6 PUFA in malignant and normal breast tissue [ Time Frame: At time of surgery ]ANOVA will be used to assess the effect in normal and malignant breast tissue.
- Proliferation and apoptosis in malignant breast tissue [ Time Frame: At time of surgery ]ANOVA will be used to assess the effect in normal and malignant breast tissue.
