We wanted to determine whether alpha-tocopherol supplementation to pregnant rats could increase the concentration of alpha-tocopherol in maternal and fetal plasma and tissues. Pregnant rats were treated with alpha-tocopherol on days 18 and 19 gestation and studied at day 20. A control group was studied in parallel. Treatment of pregnant rats with alpha-tocopherol increased its concentration in maternal and fetal plasma, in all maternal plasma lipoprotein fractions, in maternal and fetal liver… CONTINUE READING
