In brief: Supportive

Mitochondria are little workshops in each cell that do work outsourced from the central nucleus.
When the mitochondria do work that is defective, the intricate work of sustaining the bodies metabolism begins to fail. Over time sensitive functions decline and the person looses capabilities. After diagnosis, the aim of therapy is to preserve quality of life as long as possible.
