Question: Is the α-tocopherol as an exogenous antioxidant supplementation effective in improving hemolysis and oxidative stress on β-thalassemia major?
Finding: We found significant enhancements in plasma haptoglobin were noted in the α-tocopherol group (3.01 mg/dL; range, 0.60–42.42 mg/dL; P=0.021).
Meaning: The α-tocopherol can improve hemolysis by increasing the haptoglobin level as hemolysis marker.

Three Cases of Hemolysis After Transcatheter Closure of A Patent Ductus Arteriosus
Sang-Bum Lee, Myung Chul Hyun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(10):1399-1403.   Published online October 15, 2000
Severe hemolysis occurred after transcatheter occlusion of a patent ductus arteriosus in 3 patients among 41 patients who underwent transcatheter occlusion of a patent ductus arteriosus. The problems were managed by a standard surgical ligation of the duct, leaving the occlusion device(the Rashkind umbrella and a detachable coil) in situ in one patient, surgical removal of the detachable coil and...
