Endothelial dysfunction is thought to be an important early event in atherogenesis, related in part to reduced bioavailability of nitric oxide in the arterial wall. Endothelial function may be impaired in the presence of oxidised low density lipoprotein. The use of vitamin E as an anti-oxidant might enhance the bioavailability of nitric oxide in this situation. The effect of vitamin E 1000 IU/day on arterial endothelial physiology was studied in 20 asymptomatic older subjects, aged 45-70 years… Expand
