vitamin E supplementation may interfere with the emergence of drug-resistant HIV-1 variants archived in the resting cell reservoir and delay or limit virus rebound upon treatment interruptions.

    In vitro suppression of latent HIV-1 activation by vitamin E: potential clinical implications.

    Division of Clinical Research, Institute of Human Virology, University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute, Baltimore, MD, USA.

    We evaluated the effect of vitamin E in controlling HIV-1 production upon activation of the patients' reservoir of resting CD4 lymphocytes in tissue culture experiments. The addition of vitamin E to patients' cultures resulted in significantly reduced levels of p24 virus production (P = 0.0015). These results suggest that vitamin E supplementation may interfere with the emergence of drug-resistant HIV-1 variants archived in the resting cell reservoir and delay or limit virus rebound upon treatment interruptions.

Administration of vitamin E suppresses CD95L mRNA expression and protects T cells of HIV-1-infected individuals from CD95-mediated apoptosis.

Our data suggest that the survival and differentiation of HIV-specific CD8(+) T cells may be compromised by CD95/Fas apoptosis induced by FasL-expressing HIV-infected cells.
