In the absence of validated, effective drug treatments, patients with mitochondrial disease often take a variety of vitamins and supplements, substances that are largely unstandardized, unregulated, and unproven. A group of medical experts recommend performing systematic scientific studies to test precise nutritional interventions for patients.
