Studies related to Risk of Cataracts and Vitamin E

Vitamin E Supplementation And Cataract: Randomized Controlled Trial

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 6+ Months
Number of Subjects 1038
Sex Both Genders
Age Range 45-64, 65+
Notes for this study:
In persons aged 55-80 with either early signs or no signs of cataract formation, supplementation of 500IU vitamin E (as alpha-tocopherol) daily for four years has failed to cause significant protective effects relative to placebo.

All cause mortality done in a secondary analysis did not differ between groups, nor did any reported side effects.
