Background: The ability of the human body to produce metabolic energy from light modifies
fundamental concepts of biochemistry.
Objective: This review discusses the relationships between the long-accepted concept is that glucose
has a unique dual role as an energy source and as the main source of carbon chains that are precursors
of all organic matter. The capability of melanin to produce energy challenges this premise.
Methods: The prevalent biochemical concept, therefore, needs to be adjusted to incorporate a newly
discovered state of Nature based on melanin’s ability to dissociate water to produce energy and to reform
water from molecular hydrogen and oxygen.
Results and Discussion: Our findings regarding the potential implication of QIAPI-1 as a melanin
precursor that has bioenergetics capabilities.
Conclusion: Specifically, we reported its promising application as a means for treating retinopathy of
prematurity (ROP). The instant report focuses on the long-term treatment medical effects of melanin in
