Description: Idebenone (2-(10-hydroxydecyl)-5,6-dimethoxy-3-methyl-cyclohexa-2,5-diene-1,4-dione) is a synthetic analogue of ubiquinone (coenzyme Q10), a known physiological mitochondria’s membrane compound. Idebenone appears to act as a coenzyme Q10-like compound exhibiting similarly antioxidant and electron chain transport properties involved in the generation of ATP. Idebenone has been reported to improve energetic metabolism deficiencies and to relieve neurologic symptoms. Initially developed for the treatment of cognitive disturbances and Alzheimer’s disease, idebenone is approved as an orphan drug by the Food Drug and Administration (FDA) and European agencies for the treatments of Friedreich’s ataxia, Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy, or Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
