The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of a vitamin E-coated surface on platelet activation, focusing on the interactions among the vitamin E-coated surface, platelets and leukocytes. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or PRP containing leukocytes (LPRP) was used. No difference was observed in platelet activation between PRP and LPRP for a vitamin E-coated membrane, meaning that platelet activation triggered by leukocytes was suppressed in plasma coming in contact with a vitamin E-coated membrane, while the membrane itself directly induced platelet activation. The antioxidant capacity of the vitamin E-coated membrane in contact with PRP or LPRP was partially reduced, but sufficient residual capacity remained. The in vitro experiments using an oxidized vitamin E-coated surface revealed that P-selectin expression and superoxide anion production in the platelets and platelet adhesion were induced by contact with the oxidized vitamin E-coated surface. We conclude that contact with a vitamin E-coated surface reduces platelet activation mediated by superoxide anions, probably by reducing superoxide anions, but during the process of the reduction, the vitamin E-coated surface itself becomes oxidized, which again causes platelet activation. The beneficial effects of a vitamin E-coated dialyzer in respect of platelet activation were counteracted by the formation of oxidized vitamin E.
