In humans, it is usually taken orally as a pill (gel bead or capsule), but intravenous infusions have been given. Coenzyme Q is absorbed best with fat; therefore, lipid preparations are better absorbed than the purified compound.[2,4] In human studies, supplementation doses and administration schedules have varied, but usually have been in the range of 90 to 390 mg/day.All things inside the luxurious cabin are electronically adjustable (Seats, sunroof, steering wheel) and the original HIFI comes as standard with the ultimate 90’s accessory: a 6 CD changer.The full option black leather interior completes the black on black look.as a therapeutic agent in cancer began in 1961, when a deficiency was noted in the blood of both Swedish and American cancer patients, especially in the blood of patients with breast cancer.[2-4] A subsequent study showed a statistically significant relationship between the level of plasma coenzyme Q deficiency and breast cancer prognosis. Low blood levels of this compound have been reported in patients with malignancies other than breast cancer, including myeloma, lymphoma, and cancers of the lung, prostate, pancreas, colon, kidney, and head and neck.[2,6,7] Furthermore, decreased levels of coenzyme Q have accumulated since 1962. Research into cellular energy-producing mechanisms that involve this compound was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1978.Some of the accumulated data show that coenzyme Q stimulates animal immune systems, leading to higher antibody levels, greater numbers and/or activities of macrophages and T cells (T lymphocytes),[13,14] and increased resistance to infection.[15-17] Coenzyme Q has also been reported to increase Ig G (immunoglobulin G) antibody levels and to increase the CD4 to CD8 T-cell ratio in humans.[18-20] CD4 and CD8 are proteins found on the surface of T cells, with CD4 and CD8 identifying helper T cells and cytotoxic T cells, respectively; decreased CD4 to CD8 T-cell ratios have been reported for cancer patients.[21,22] Research subsequently delineated the antioxidant properties of coenzyme Q that are relevant to cancer include its essential function in cellular energy production and its stimulation of the immune system (which may both be related), as well as its role as an antioxidant.Coenzyme Q is essential to aerobic energy production,[1,25,28] and it has been suggested that increased cellular energy leads to increased antibody synthesis in B cells (B lymphocytes).[6,18] As noted previously (General Information section), coenzyme Q is thought to stabilize cell membranes (lipid -containing structures essential to maintaining cell integrity) and to prevent free radical damage to other important cellular components.[1,25,27,32] Free radical damage to DNA (and possibly to other cellular molecules) may be a factor in cancer development.[11,23,30,33-36] is capable of stimulating the immune system, with treated animals showing increased resistance to protozoal infections [1,2] and to viral and chemically-induced neoplasia.[1-4] Early studies of coenzyme Q demonstrated a protective effect on the heart muscle of mice, rats, and rabbits given the anthracycline anticancer drug doxorubicin.[7-12] Although another study confirmed this protective effect with intraperitoneal administration of doxorubicin in mice, it failed to demonstrate a protective effect when the anthracycline was given intravenously, which is the route of administration in humans. Researchers in one study sounded a cautionary note when they found that coadministration of coenzyme Q and single-dose radiation therapy, showed substantially less inhibition of tumor growth than mice in the control group that were treated with radiation therapy alone.Since radiation leads to the production of free radicals, and since antioxidants protect against free radical damage, the effect in this study might be explained by coenzyme Q as a treatment for cancer in humans has been investigated in only a limited manner.The “Q” and the “10” in the name refer to the quinone chemical group and the 10 isoprenyl subunits that are part of this compound’s structure.The term “coenzyme” denotes it as an organic (contains carbon atoms), nonprotein molecule necessary for the proper functioning of its protein partner (an enzyme or an enzyme complex).Therefore, premarket evaluation and approval by the U. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are not required unless specific disease prevention or treatment claims are made.The FDA can, however, remove from the market dietary supplements that it deems unsafe.
