Pharmacology

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects the body from damage. Vitamin E prevents oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids (components of the cellular membrane) and other oxygen-sensitive compounds like vitamin A and vitamin C. Vitamin E insufficiency in preterm infants can cause irritability, edema, thrombosis, and hemolytic anemia. In adults and children with low serum tocopherol concentrations, oxidative agents have been linked to creatinuria, ceroid deposition, muscular weakness, decreased erythrocyte survival, and enhanced in vitro hemolysis.
