Special Issue "Vitamin E: Uses, Benefits, Emerging Aspects, and RDA"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 29 February 2020.
Interests: role played by free radicals in tissue functional adaptations to physio-pathological conditions in which tissue oxidative stress develops (alteration of thyroid state, physical activity, exposition to xenobiotics, cold exposure, ischemia-reperfusion, etc.); study of the ROS sensitive factors involved in the control of mitochondrial biogenesis and adaptation of the antioxidant system

Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Physiological and Pathological Role of ROS: Benefits and Limitations of Antioxidant Treatment 2.0
At about 100 years from its discovery (by Bishop in 1922 in studies concerning the effects of nutrition on reproduction in rats), Vitamin E can still cause surprises. Many aspects of the absorption, metabolism, tissue distribution, and excretion of this vitamin are yet to be fully understood. Similarly, the biological functions that this vitamin, its different forms, and metabolites play in living organisms are still being studied. After its discovery as a factor essential for rat fertility, Vitamin E was characterized for its properties of fat-soluble antioxidants and subsequently was shown to have signaling and gene-regulation effects. Recent acquisitions about vitamin E concern its capacity to reduce cardiovascular risk; to act as an immunomodulator; and to possess antiallergic effects and neuroprotective and hepatoprotective properties. Some data suggest that the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for Vitamin E needs to be revised based on new finding that are emerging from studies on its biological functions.
This Special Issue of Nutrients, entitled “Vitamin E: Uses, Benefits, Emerging Aspects, and RDA”, welcomes the submission of manuscripts describing either original research (clinical trials, epidemiological studies, and experiments conducted in animal models) or systematic reviews and meta-analyses that examine new aspects of Vitamin E metabolism and function.
With this Special Issue, we aim to advance knowledge and stimulate innovative ideas.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
