Abstract

The mitochondrial respiratory chain encephalomyopathies represent an important group of multisystem disorders. No curative treatment is currently available. A number of measures have been reported to have a theoretical potential to improve respiratory function. These treatment strategies have variable scientific support, many reports being anecdotal. We critically review the various therapeutic measures employed and suggest future treatment directions.
