The objective of this article is to review the role of vitamin E in cardiovascular disease. We begin by describing the general characteristics and metabolism of vitamin E and the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis as it relates to oxidation. We also discuss key in vitro studies, animal studies, observational studies, and clinical trials regarding the potentially cardioprotective effect of vitamin E. Lastly, we outline the current recommendations regarding vitamin E in the prevention and treatment… Expand
Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Dietary Antioxidants in Patients with Coronary Artery Disease
TLDR
The finding suggests that these dietary antioxidants, vitamin E and C, were significantly related to plasma inflammatory markers in CAD patients. Expand
Effectiveness of Some Vitamins in the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease: A Narrative Review
  • Anureet K. Shah, N. Dhalla

By virtue of their regulatory role in various metabolic and biosynthetic pathways for energy status and cellular integrity, both hydro-soluble and lipo-soluble vitamins are considered to be involvedExpand
Overview of OxLDL and Its Impact on Cardiovascular Health: Focus on Atherosclerosis
TLDR
The role of oxLDL in atherosclerosis development on different levels is discussed, with a focus on the part that may have both anti-inflammatory and pro-inflammatory properties. Expand
Present trends in vitamin E research
TLDR
Besides vitamin E signaling, attention will be given to tocotrienols as one of the emerging topics in vitamin E research and a critical re‐examination of the most recent clinical trials will be provided together with the potential use of vitamin E in disease prevention and therapy. Expand
Update on medical management of dyslipidemia and atherosclerosis.
TLDR
Higher intake of antioxidants in fruit and vegetable, life style modifications, cessation of smoking, physical exercise and introduction of medications that lower LDL and promote HDL (statins, niacin and fibrates) resulted in a substantial decline of the killer effect of unmanaged CVD. Expand
Antioxidants, inflammation and cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
Additional determination of NO metabolites, BH4 and plasma antioxidants in patients with CVD and related clinical settings can be helpful to improve the understanding of redox-regulation in health and disease and might provide a rationale for potential antioxidant therapies in CVD. Expand
Vitamin E, Inflammatory/Immune Response, and the Elderly
TLDR
The poor consideration of the vitamin E–gene interactions that may open new roadmaps for a correct and personalized vitamin E supplementation in aging and age-related diseases with satisfactory results in order to reach healthy aging and longevity are discussed. Expand
Antioxidant Supplementation in Cardiovascular Disease and Hypertension
TLDR
The results on the benefits of antioxidants supplementation in elderly cardiovascular hypertensive patients undertaking periodical cardiovascular checking, and the role of the antioxidant therapy in cardiac surgery, are discussed focusing on potential improvement of the biochemical profile associated with oxidative metabolism. Expand
Vitamin E Isoforms as Modulators of Lung Inflammation
TLDR
A better understanding of the differential regulation of inflammation by isoforms of vitamin E provides a basis towards the design of clinical studies and diets that would effectively modulate inflammatory pathways in lung disease. Expand
Vitamin E for the management of major depressive disorder: possible role of the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant systems.
TLDR
It is suggested that vitamin E has potential to be used as an adjuvant for the management of MDD, but more studies are clearly needed to ascertain the efficacy of vitamin E for alleviating depressive symptoms. Expand

Vitamin E and its Role in the Prevention of Atherosclerosis and Carcinogenesis: A Review
TLDR
The role of vitamin E in the prevention of atherosclerosis and carcinogenesis has been carefully examined with particular emphasis on salient human studies (clinical trials) and their limitations. Expand
The effect of alpha-tocopherol on monocyte proatherogenic activity.
TLDR
In addition to the decrease in oxidative stress resulting from AT supplementation, as evidenced by decreased F(2)-isoprostanes and LDL oxidizability, AT is anti-inflammatory and exerts beneficial antiatherogenic effects on cells crucial in atherogenesis such as monocytes. Expand
Vitamin E consumption and the risk of coronary heart disease in men.
TLDR
Evidence is provided of an association between a high intake of vitamin E and a lower risk of coronary heart disease in men, and public policy recommendations with regard to the use ofitamin E supplements should await the results of additional studies. Expand
The European perspective on vitamin E: current knowledge and future research.
TLDR
The scientists agreed that the functions of vitamin E were underestimated if one considered only its antioxidative properties, and future research on this essential vitamin should focus on what makes it essential for humans, why the body apparently utilizes alpha-tocopherol preferentially, and what functions other forms of Vitamin E have. Expand
Vitamin E consumption and the risk of coronary disease in women.
TLDR
As compared with women in the lowest fifth of the cohort with respect to vitamin E intake, those in the top fifth had a relative risk of major coronary disease of 0.66, after adjustment for age and smoking. Expand
The effects of alpha tocopherol supplementation on monocyte function. Decreased lipid oxidation, interleukin 1 beta secretion, and monocyte adhesion to endothelium.
TLDR
Novel evidence for an intracellular effect of alpha tocopherol in monocytes that is antiatherogenic is provided, both in resting and activated cells compared with baseline and washout phases. Expand
Vitamin E supplementation and cardiovascular events in high-risk patients.
TLDR
In patients at high risk for cardiovascular events, treatment with vitamin E for a mean of 4.5 years had no apparent effect on cardiovascular outcomes and there were no significant differences in the incidence of secondary cardiovascular outcomes or in death from any cause. Expand
Alpha-Tocopherol Supplementation in Healthy Individuals Reduces Low-Density Lipoprotein Oxidation but Not Atherosclerosis: The Vitamin E Atherosclerosis Prevention Study (VEAPS)
TLDR
The results are consistent with previous randomized controlled trials and extend the null results of vitamin E supplementation to the progression of IMT in healthy men and women at low risk for CVD. Expand
Dietary antioxidant vitamins and death from coronary heart disease in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
It is suggested that in postmenopausal women the intake of vitamin E from food is inversely associated with the risk of death from coronary heart disease and that such women can lower their risk without using vitamin supplements. Expand
