Abstract

Coenzyme Q10, or ubiquinone, is a non-prescription nutritional supplement. It is a fat-soluble molecule that acts as an electron carrier in mitochondria and as a coenzyme for mitochondrial enzymes. Coenzyme Q10 deficiency may be associated with a multitude of diseases including heart failure. The severity of HF correlates with the severity of Coenzyme Q10 deficiency. Emerging data suggests that oxidative stress is increased in patients with HF and coenzyme Q10 may reduce oxidative stress because of its antioxidant activity. Coenzyme Q10 may also have a role in stabilizing myocardial calcium-dependent ion channels and preventing the consumption of metabolites essential for (ATP) synthesis. Coenzyme Q10, although is not a primary recommended treatment for heart failure, could be beneficial to patients with heart failure. Several randomized controlled trials, compared Coenzyme Q10  to other therapeutic modalities, have been conducted but no Cochrane-style review has been done.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 18. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 February 2019.
All research outputs
#758,698
of 12,593,821 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#2,590
of 10,373 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#11,457
of 160,943 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#32
of 112 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,593,821 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 93rd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 10,373 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 20.2. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 74% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 160,943 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 112 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 71% of its contemporaries.
