Cholesterol biosynthesis is a complex pathway comprising more than 20 biochemical reactions. Although the final product created in the pathway is cholesterol, the intermediate products, such as ubiquinone and dolichol, also provide vital metabolic functions. Statins are HGM-CoA reductase inhibitors that stop the production of cholesterol by directly inhibiting the mevalonate production. Mevalonate is a precursor of two additional vital molecules, squalene and ubiquinone (coenzyme Q10). We hypothesized that inhibiting the cholesterol biosynthesis with statins for an extended duration may potentiate the oxidative stress, neurodegenerative disease and cancer. Our recommendation was to measure muscle enzymes, antioxidant capacity, and ubiquinone to monitor patients receiving the statins for prolonged periods of time.

Oxidative stress can play a role in the pathogenesis of cancer [ 1 ]. Reactive species are generated endogenously, and from exogenous stimuli including xenobiotics. These reactive species are controlled by various cellular antioxidant systems [ 2 , 3 ]. Hypercholesterolemia can induce the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), such as superoxide anion, via enzymes including the oxidase for the reduced form of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) and xanthine oxidase, and other sources of ROS from mitochondria [ 4 ]. Some investigators have
