    West syndrome or infantile spasms is one of the most frequent epileptic syndromes in the first year of life. The clinical symptoms of infantile spasms are very different than any other type of seizure because of both the absence of paroxysmal motor phenomena (i.e., as in a convulsion) and the...

    Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a lipophilic component of the mitochondrial respiratory enzyme chain, which transfers electrons to complex III (cytochrome bc1 complex) from complex I (NADH-CoQ reductase), complex II (succinate dehydrogenase), and from the oxidation of fatty acids and branched-chain...
