Coenzyme Q10 in health and disease; new book from Prof. Dr. Anna Gvozdjáková
Coenzyme Q10 in health and disease is the title of the new Q10 book from Prof. Dr. Anna Gvozdjáková, Ph.D., DSc. From the Medical Faculty of Comenius University in Bratislava/Slovakia. The book is in the Slovak language.
This is only 2 years after her previous book in English: Recent Advances in Mitochondrial Medicine and Coenzyme Q10.
Anna Gvozdjáková has cooperated with the discoverer of coenzyme Q10, Professor Frederick Crane. Professor Gvozdjáková’s findings of the beneficial effect of coenzyme Q10 in children with autism led Professor Crane to the hypothesis of a new function of coenzyme Q10 in mitochondria and about its transport across the outer membrane of mitochondria.
Anna Gvozdjáková has also worked on many projects with Dr. Raj K. Chopra, President of Tishcon Corp. in the USA. Tishcon supported at least 13 projects in the field of mitochondrial function of Q10 in clinical and experimental studies and provided different types of coenzyme Q10 and ubiquinol formulations.
During my time at Kaneka, I was her key scientific contact for clinical studies with Kaneka Ubiquinol.

Coenzyme Q10 and ubiquinol
See my contributions on Q10 and ubiquinol in the book on comparison of bioavailability of Q10 and ubiquinol and the dynamic equilibrium between both.
In the meanwhile, I preliminary calculated that on average in one hour each Q10 molecule is recycled/reduced to ubiquinol about 2500 times in our mitochondria.
Sick & unhealthy have a Q10 deficit compared to healthy people
I would like to conclude with following interesting findings from Professor Gvozdjáková in her multicenter Slovak Study (3000 human samples) showing that all groups of patients have a Q10 deficit compared to healthy volunteers.
