In an attempt to clarify the nature of analgesic effect of alpha-tocopherol, the influence of alpha-tocopherol on the levels of endogenic opioids was studied in the experiments in vitro. Main changes of the level of adenohypophyseal (tissue) beta-endorphins and in the incubation media were evaluated as well as the involvement of the endogenous opioid system in the analgesic effect of alpha-tocopherol.
