Plasma Coenzyme Q10 Predicts Lipid-lowering Response to High-Dose Atorvastatin.

Michael A Pacanowski, Reginald F Frye, Osatohanmen Enogieru, Richard S Schofield, Issam Zineh,

<h4>Background</h4>Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a provitamin synthesized via the HMG-CoA reductase pathway, and thus may serve as a potential marker of intrinsic HMG-CoA reductase activity. HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) decrease CoQ10, although it is unclear whether this is due to reductions in lipoproteins, which transport CoQ10.<h4>Objectives</h4>We evaluated whether baseline plasma ...
