Evidence of Plasma CoQ10‐Lowering Effect by HMG‐CoA Reductase Inhibitors: A Double‐Blind, Placebo‐Controlled Study
The data show that the treatment with HMG‐CoA reductase inhibitors lowers both total cholesterol and CoQ10 plasma levels in normal volunteers and in hypercholesterolemic patients. Expand
Serum Fatty Acids and Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss: A Case-Control Study
Findings suggest that not only total cholesterol and LDL levels, but also fatty acid determination, may help identify SSNHL patients with cardiovascular risk factors. Expand
Chronic and Intermittent Hypoxia Induce Different Degrees of Myocardial Tolerance to Hypoxia-Induced Dysfunction
It is concluded that the protection in animals exposed to CH appears conferred by the hypoxic preconditioning due to the reoxygenation rather than by hypoxia per se. Expand
Low plasma coenzyme Q10 levels as an independent prognostic factor for melanoma progression.
Analysis of the findings suggests that baseline plasma CoQ10 levels are a powerful and independent prognostic factor that can be used to estimate the risk for melanoma progression. Expand
Coenzyme Q 10 and Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Idiopathic Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss Patients
This is the first report regarding the association of ISSNHL and low serum levels of the antioxidant CoQ and low levels of CoQ remained significantly associated with a high risk of sudden sensorineural hearing loss. Expand
Coenzyme Q homologs and trace elements content of Antarctic fishes Chionodraco hamatus and Pagothenia bernacchii compared with the mediterranean fish Mugil cephalus
A high level of antioxidant defenses with respect to the mediterranean fish is indicated and may be considered as a stimulating basis for further studies on the oxidative metabolism of Antarctic organisms. Expand
Influence of diet with different lipid composition on neutrophil chemiluminescence and disease activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
This study corroborates the hypothesis of an anti-inflammatory role for polyunsaturated fatty acids in patients with chronic inflammatory diseases. Expand
Coenzyme Q10 in dilated cardiomyopathy.
Therapy with coenzyme Q10 may be considered to be an efficacious aid in the traditional treatment of chronic cardiac failure and that the therapeutic effects depend on the basal plasmatic and myocardial levels. Expand
Reference intervals for 18 clinical chemistry analytes in fetal plasma samples between 18 and 40 weeks of pregnancy.
The intrauterine biochemical assessment of the human fetus is important in fetal medicine, for both prenatal diagnosis and therapy of fetal diseases. Percutaneous umbilical blood sampling (PUBS)Expand
