As the literature supported the protective role of a-tocopherol
, we employed it against CYP-induced ovarian toxicity in group C to imitate moderate ovarian damage.11 Aiming to exploit the potential impact of acute ovarian damage on follicular dynamics and serum AMH production, we were able to study three levels of OR; normal (group A and D), moderately decreased (group C) and severely decreased (group B).
 compared a-tocopherol
levels with antiretroviral classes and showed a decrease of this vitamin in nearly 20% of PLWHA .
pseudo-cajan proved excellent antioxidants as compared with BHT whereas the stem extracts showed their closeness with the a-Tocopherol
(2015) which reports 11.61 [+ or -] 0.08 (mg 100g-1) tocopherols, the most significant being the a-tocopherol
and 11.40 [+ or -] 0.40 (pg 100g-1) of carotenoids in this oil.
a-and d-tocopherol induce expression of hepatic a-tocopherol

is measurable in human blood, intake recommendations are based on o-tocopherol.
The concentration of a-tocopherol
in the blood plasma of patients of the second group was significantly higher (19.7 [+ or -] 1.10 mkmol/L and 15.6 [+ or -] 0.71 mkmol/L respectively, p<0.01) compared to the control group.
In the European Union, adult recommendations previously ranged from 4 to 25 mg a-tocopherol
equivalents (a-TE)/day for men and from 3 to 12 mg a-TE/day for women.
To test for specificity of LBE-induced ROS formation, the HT-29 cells were co-treated with LBE and one of the following anti-oxidants, N-acetyl cysteine, glutathione, a-Tocopherol
or ascorbic acid, with results demonstrating significant reduction in ROS formation.
The entrapment efficiencies of a-tocopherol
in the polymeric matrix were approximately 89% and 95% for nanoparticles with an 8% and 16% [alpha]-tocopherol theoretical loading, respectively.
In recent studies on rats subjected to 24-h UUO followed by 2 h post-release period, it was observed that a-tocopherol
as the most potent lipidsoluble antioxidant could prevent oxidative stress in the POK.
The results obtained with a-tocopherol
in the similar series of tests are also specified.
