|Whilst the findings of epidemiological meta-analyses for an inverse relationship between dietary intake of vitamin E and risk of cancer have been inconsistent at best, vitamin E continues to attract interest due to its ability to protect cells from free radical damage and induce apoptotic cell death in various cell types. Earlier studies focused solely on the apoptotic action of alpha-tocopherol with some authors even concluding that other vitamin E analogues have no influence on cell survival or the ability to induce apoptosis. However, we have seen an emergence of research into the cytotoxic and apoptotic activities of tocotrienols, particularly gamma and delta. Vitamin E exists naturally as a combination of all eight isomers. Further exploration of research reveals that supplementation with single isomers may impact the distribution of other vitamin E isomers and have the ability to cause detrimental outcomes such as reduced bone health and increased cardiovascular risk factors. For effective use of vitamin E in clinical cases, a deeper understanding of the vitamin E isomers and the dynamic balance between them is essential. Case studies in the management of glioma will be used as a guide to highlight the use of implementation science; to promote the integration of research findings and evidence into healthcare clinical practice. There will be a strong practice based focus on the role of vitamin E in enhancing cancer treatment outcomes, reducing toxicity of chemotherapy drugs to healthy cells and its role in attenuating oxidative stress in maintenance of health. Practical interventions to ensure safe administration of vitamin E and major flaws with current practices will be addressed.|
