The mechanism of action of SkQ1 involves at least two extremely complex and novel concepts: delivering a compound inside mitochondria and reducing ROS production inside mitochondria in a controlled and sustainable manner. SkQ1 molecule successfully addresses these two aspects as experimental work has shown.
More than a dozen studies have been conducted and showed SkQ1 effectiveness in such critical therapeutic areas as the following:
- Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
- Dry eye syndrome (DES)
- Non-infectious uveitis
