Plasma Concentrations of Vitamins A and E and Carotenoids in Alzheimer's Disease

In a case/control study, serum concentrations of vitamins A and E and major carotenoids were determined in patients with Alzheimer's disease, multi-infarct dementia and control subjects.

The results showed that both Alzheimer's and multi-infarct dementia patients had significantly lower levels of vitamin E and ß-carotene than controls (vitamin E: 18.65±3.62 µmol/l in Alzheimer's disease and 15.80±6.93 µmol/l in multi-infarct dementia versus 30.03±12.03 µmol/l in controls; ß-carotene <0.13 to 0.42 µmol/l in Alzheimer's disease and <0.13 to 0.30 µmol/l in multi-infarct dementia versus 0.13 to 1.53 µmol/l in controls).

Vitamin A was significantly reduced only in the Alzheimer's patients (1.56±0.78 µmol/l in Alzheimer's disease versus 2.13±0.86 µmol/l in controls).
