Peripheral blood samples were collected from ten A3243G MELAS patients and twenty age- and sex-matched healthy controls (2 controls for each patient). The patient cohort consisted of 4 females and 6 males, mean±s.e.m. age was 44.1±11.9 years (range: 22–63 years), mean±s.e.m. age at disease onset was 27.1±4.9 years (range: 13–55 years), mean±s.e.m. disease duration was 19.0±4.7 years (range: 4–43 years), and disease severity measured by the ‘Newcastle Mitochondrial Disease Adult Scale’ (NMDAS) 8 ranging from 0.0 (no symptoms) to 1.0 (maximum score) was 0.26±0.05 (range: 0.02–0.54).
