To assess the degree of oxidative stress, we measured plasma ubiquinone-10 percentage (%CoQ-10) in total amounts of ubiquinone-10 in patients with chronic active hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma, and in age-matched control subjects, %CoQ-10 values were 12.9 +/- 10.3 (n = 28), 10.6 +/- 6.8 (n = 28), 18.9 +/- 11.1 (n = 20), and 6.4 +/- 3.3 (n = 16), respectively, showing a significant increase in oxidative stress in patient groups as compared to control subjects.
