All three vitamin E-fed groups (60, 200, and 800 international units [IU]), but particularly the 200 IU group, showed an increase in both antibody response and DTH diameter. 3 U/ml in the control group) and a 65 percent change in DTH diameter of induration (compared to 18 percent among controls). Pallast et al. (1999) confirmed the findings. Meydani and colleagues asked whether this improved immune response from vitamin E supplementation is also associated with an actual decrease in susceptibility to infection.

For example, Meydani described work by Melinda Beck, University of North Carolina, and colleagues on the coxsackie B3 (CVB3) virus. There are two types of CVB3 virus: one avirulent (CVB3/0 does not cause disease), the other virulent (CVB3/20 can cause myocarditis in animals and is known to be associated with Keshan disease, a cardiomyopathy associated with dietary deficiencies in selenium [Se]). , 1994). When the researchers separated the virus from the host and injected it back into another young animal that was not Se-deficient, the latter animal nonetheless developed myocarditis, suggesting that the normally mild virus had somehow become virulent in the Se-deficient mice.
