Objective:  Hypertension is one of the important clinical problems of the diabetic cardiovascular disease. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of vitamin E on blood pressure parameters and adhesive molecule amounts in diabetic rat. Methods:  Twenty-four male Wistar rats were divided into three groups (n=8) Control(C), non-treated diabetic (NTD) and vitamin E treated diabetic (VETD) groups. Single IP injection of buffered STZ (60mg/kg) in cold sodium citrate (pH 4.5) was used to induce diabetes. The VETD was received 300mg of vitamin E daily intragastrically for 6 weeks. Systolic, diastolic, mean arterial pressure as well as dicrotic pressure, crests time, systolic and diastolic period and plasma levels of ICAM-1 and E-selectin were measured after 6 weeks. Results:  The results revealed that along with significant increase systolic, diastolic, mean arterial pressure, crest time, systolic duration, and the amount of VCAM-1 and E-selectin in diabetic rats. There was no significant difference in heart rate, and cardiac cyclic duration among different groups. Significant improvement of blood pressure parameters as well as attenuation of the elevated VCAM-1 and E-selectin amounts was found in vitamin E treated group. Conclusions:  These finding indicate that vitamin E significantly improved blood pressure elevation in diabetic rats and that these effects could be associated with reducing adhesive molecule and antioxidant properties of vitamin E.
