    Medizinische Klinik, Universitatskrankenhaus Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany
    Biofactors 9:225-9. 1999
    ..These data suggest that the level of ubiquinol-10 in human plasma may serve as a marker for liver dysfunction, reflecting its diminished reduction by the liver rather than increased consumption by oxidants...
