Abstract

As the most powerful and versatile biological defence mechanism of animals and man, the immune system identifies foreign substances and defends the body against their attack. The immune response is concerned not only with providing protection against disease-causing infectious agents, such as bacteria and viruses, that invade the body, but also in recognising and destroying pre-cancerous, tumour-forming cells that develop within the body. Recent evidence indicates that vitamin E is a vital link in optimal immune system functioning and can enhance resistance to disease. The interaction of vitamin E and immune systems, AIDS, oxidative stress, and circulatory and pulmonary system are reviewed in this paper. 1995
