Visomitin® (aka SKQ1, Skulachev Ions) is a preventive and therapeutic medicine which is the first registered antioxidant of the world which functions by targeting mitochondria. Plastohinonildetsiltrifenilfosfomiya bromide, which is the active ingredient of this drug is a derivative of plastoquinone that via a linker chain or CIO is connected to the rest of the triphenylphosphine. This has a very unique property of the ions targeting directly the mitochondria on entering the cells which results in its highly potent antioxidant effect. Mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell which produces valuable energy. But as a byproduct of the process of production of energy, it releases reactive oxygen species or ROS. An excessive amount of ROS will result in oxidation of the tissues and oxidative stress can cause severe damage to the cell, and even irreversible cell death or apoptosis.
