BACKGROUND alpha-Tocopherol plays an important role in protecting LDL against oxidation. However, additional effects of alpha-tocopherol at the intracellular level may contribute to the clinical outcome of intervention studies. OBJECTIVE We investigated whether alpha-tocopherol influences the inflammatory responses of immune cells in normolipidemic and hypertriglyceridemic subjects. DESIGN RRR-alpha-Tocopherol was administered for 6 wk at a dose of 600 IU (402 mg)/d to 12 primary… CONTINUE READING
