Vitamin E (α-, β-, γ- and δ-tocopherol and -tocotrienol) is an essential factor in the human diet and regularly taken as a dietary supplement by many people, who act under the assumption that it may be good for their health and can do no harm. With the publication of meta-analyses reporting increased mortality in persons taking vitamin E supplements, the(More)
It has been hypothesized in the literature that intake of high-dosage vitamin E supplements might alter the expression of cytochrome P(450) enzymes (CYP), particularly CYP3A4, which may lead to adverse nutrient-drug interactions. Because previously published studies reported conflicting findings, we investigated the pharmacodynamics of the lipid-lowering(More)
SCOPE Members of the vitamin E family or their metabolites may induce the xenobiotic transporter P-glycoprotein (P-gp), which can limit the bioavailability of drugs and phytochemicals. This study aimed to investigate if α- and γ-tocopherol, α- and γ-tocotrienol, the long chain metabolite α-tocopherol-13'-COOH, the short chain metabolites α- and(More)
The increased uptake and storage of lipids in the liver are important features of steatotic liver diseases. The fatty acid translocase/scavenger receptor cluster of differentiation (CD)36 facilitates the hepatic uptake of lipids. We investigated if RRR-α-tocopherol (αT) alone or in combination with atorvastatin (ATV) is capable of preventing hepatic lipid(More)
