  • We examined the association between changes in the inflammatory markers—C-reactive protein, white blood cell count, albumin, and fibrinogen—and the traditional risk factors—total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, systolic blood pressure, and diabetes—with decreased smoking intensity and increased time since smoking cessation.

  • It has been proposed that vitamin E may incorporate into cellular membranes by association of the tocopherol side chain with the polyenoic fatty acid residues in the membrane fatty acids [ 15 19 ] . This interaction may stabilize cell membranes by making highly unsaturated fatty acids less liable to peroxidation as well as by making highly unsaturated fatty acids less available for phospholipid hydrolysis by phospholipase [ 15 16 ] . The latter action may reduce mobilization of arachidonic acid (AA) from the membranes and in this way reduce the amount of AA available as a substrate to cyclooxygenase and/or lipoxygenase to produce eicosanoids with mitogenic and with inflammatory properties [ 17 20 ] . Other possible antitumor actions include: induction of apoptosis, interference with hormone production, modulation of cellular signaling and gene transcription, and induction of differentiation [ 4 21 22 23 24 ] .

These findings are consistent with the idea that chemotaxis and TNF-α production are important in early inflammatory responses of neutrophils [ 34 ] . In contrast, protein levels for COX-2 remained elevated for 48 hours after endotoxin administration.
