Assessment of PCSO-524 Relative to a Comparator Product
Assessment of the Acute and Chronic Bioavailability of Marine Lipid Fraction PCSO-524 Relative to a Comparator Product.

A marine lipid oil extract isolated from the New Zealand Greenshell® Mussel, Perna canaliculus (P. canaliculus), contains a unique synergistic blend of marine fatty acids.

The objective of the this study is to evaluate the acute (5-hour) and chronic (21-day) bioavailability of a fixed dose of PCSO-524 compared to a fish oil product in a population of healthy adult participants.
