WHILE studying the effect of high-dosage vitamin E (α-tocopherol acetate) on purpura1, the good influence of this factor upon coronary heart disease became apparent. A study of a series of cardiac patients, carried out with the help of Mr. Floyd Skelton and Dr. Wilfrid Shute, has suggested: (a) vitamin E in large dosage (200–600 mgm. Ephynal–Hoffmann–LaRoche) has no apparent effect upon normal hearts, even after administration for many months on end; (b) its effect upon patients having… Expand
Quantitative evaluation of vitamin E in the treatment of angina pectoris.
TLDR
It is concluded that a large dose of vitamin E for 6 months in patients with stable angina pectoris fails to increase the exercise capacity, improve left ventricular function, or reduce the frequency of chest pain. Expand
Vitamin E-related inhibition of monocyte 5-lipoxygenase and cardiovascular outcome in maintenance hemodialysis patients.
TLDR
A daily supplement of vitamin E is recommended for the secondary prevention of cardiovascular events in end-stage renal disease patients on maintenance hemodialysis and relevant patents on vitamin E and lipoxygenase inhibitors are outlined. Expand
Anti‐atherosclerotic effects of vitamin E – myth or reality?
TLDR
Recent research revealed that at the cellular level, vitamin E acts by inhibition of smooth muscle cell proliferation, platelet aggregation, monocyte adhesion, oxLDL uptake and cytokine production, all reactions implied in the progression of atherosclerosis. Expand

TLDR
This chapter discusses the pharmacology of Vitamin E, with notable findings concerning vitamin-E-deficient animals established hepatic lesions and accumulation of lipopigment while addition of the vitamin to the diet of rabbits evoked enhanced immune function. Expand
NEW SLANT ON HYPOLIPIDEMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF VITAMIN-E AND RED DATE
Background: High plasma lipids can cause complications leading to development of metabolic syndrome, including hypercholesterolemia, hypertension and hyperglycemia. To treat syndrome by allopathicExpand
The influence of vitamin E quinone on platelet structure, function, and biochemistry.
TLDR
The greater potency of vitamin E quinone in suppressing platelet function compared to vitamin E suggests that this quin one metabolite may be the better antithrombotic agent and possibly responsible for in vivo effects previously attributed to vitaminE. Expand
Effects of α tocopherol and β carotene supplements on symptoms, progression, and prognosis of angina pectoris
TLDR
There was no evidence of beneficial effects for α tocopherol or β carotene supplements in male smokers with angina pectoris, indicating no basis for therapeutic or preventive use of these agents in such patients. Expand
Therapeutic potential of vitamin E against myocardial ischemic-reperfusion injury.

TLDR
Elective coronary revascularization would appear to provide an attractive clinical setting for evaluating the therapeutic efficacy of vitamin E in the context of cardiac ischemia-reperfusion, and compelling clinical evidence regarding vitamin E's therapeutic potential in the ischemic heart-disease patient is lacking. Expand
COMPARATIVE CHARACTERIZATION OF ANTIOXIDANT PROFILE OF VITAMIN-E AND RED DATES IN PLACEBO AND TESTED GROUPS OF HYPERLIPIDEMIC PATIENTS
TLDR
Red dates have antioxidant potential by lowering LDL-cholesterol in human plasma but this effect is not comparable with hypolipidemic effects of Vitamin E as it also increases good cholesterol i.e. HDL-ch cholesterol. Expand
