    Description

    Antioxidants present in the low-density lipoproteins (LDL) are believed to protect against atherosclerosis. The quantitatively most important antioxidant in LDL is vitamin E (a-tocopherol). Another antioxidant, coenzyme Q10 is present to a smaller degree, but may have important influence of the function of vitamin E. This Ph.D. project investigates the absorption and antioxidative effects of vitamin E and coenzyme Q in two different areas - the intestinal absorption and effects in blood, and the percutaneous absorption and protection against UV-irradiation in skin.
