    Recent studies have reported that remote organs are affected by renal ischemia reperfusion (IR). The present study investigates the role of vitamin E on the liver damage after renal IR. First, male mice were subjected to three groups (n = 9): 1) sham-operated, (2) renal IR (45 min ischemia), (3) renal IR + Vitamin E (150 mg/kg trough feeding tube for 28 d). After 24 h of reperfusion, animal were anesthetized for sample collections. Liver tissues malondialdehyde (MDA) increased and total glutathione (GSH) concentration decreased in the IR group compared to the sham group. Vitamin E consumption diminished the IR-induced increase in plasma AST and ALT. In addition, Vitamin E inhibited the IR-induced decrease in GSH activity and diminished IR-induced increase in MDA concentration. These findings showed that vitamin E consumption partly inhibited the IR-induced liver damage.
