Autophagic markers in blood mononuclear cells (BMCs) from fibromyalgia (FM) patients. (a) Quantification of acidic vacuoles in control and patient BMCs by LysoTracker fluorescence and flow-cytometry analysis. (b) Reduction of LysoTracker fluorescence in BMCs from FM patients under CoQ10 supplementation (100 μmol/L) for 24 h. Data represent the mean ± SD of three separate experiments. *P < 0.001 between controls and FM patients.
