Coenzyme Q10 in Relation of the Lipid Peroxidation, Antioxidant Enzyme Activities in Coronary Artery Disease Patients

2014-08-27 03:12:11 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Coenzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone) is recognized as an endogenous fat-soluble antioxidant in the mitochondrial membrane and considered as a preventive factor for coronary artery disease (CAD). However, the relationships between coenzyme Q10 and the prevention of the risk of CAD are still inconsistent. The purposes of this study are to investigate the relation of coenzyme Q10 concentration with the blood lipid levels, plasma homocysteine, the markers of lipid peroxidation (TBARS, ox-LDL),antioxidant enzymes activities (catalase, glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase)and to examine the association with the risk of CAD.The CAD patients is identified by cardiac catheterization as having at least 50% stenosis of one major coronary artery (n = 100). The second year is a double-blind, placebo-controlled intervention study. CAD subjects (n = 60) are randomly assign to one of the three groups (coenzyme Q10 supplements 60 mg/d, 150 mg/d, and placebo groups, n = 20/group). Intervention is going to administration for three months. The third year is a case-control study. The control group (n = 100) is comprised of healthy individuals with normal blood biochemical values, and match by age and gender with the first year CAD subjects (case group). Fasting blood samples will be obtain to determine the concentration of coenzyme Q10, homocysteine, the markers of lipid peroxidation,antioxidant enzymes activities. The differences between case and control groups will be compared by using Student's t-test. Conditional logistical regression model will be performed to calculate the odds ratio for CAD based on coenzyme Q10 level. Hopefully, the results of this study could provide the information to what has been know in CAD subjects. We expect coenzyme Q10 could be a preventive supplement to reduce the risk of CAD.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.

Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.

A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.

A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.

Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
