Administration of CoQ10 after trauma was shown to be protective because it significantly lowered the amount of malondialdehyde, a compound that increases significantly after brain trauma. CoQ10 treatment also showed various other improvements related to vascular congestion, neuronal loss, nuclear pyknosis, nuclear hyperchromasia, cytoplasmic eosinophilia, and axonal edema (in plain understandable language: the results were positive).
The researchers concluded that, "neuronal degenerative findings and the secondary brain damage and ischemia caused by oxidative stress are decreased by CoQ10 use... These results suggest that coenzyme Q10 may exert a protective effect against brain injury related neuronal damage."
