The present study was designed to evaluate the effects of dietary coenzyme $Q_{10}$ and vitamin E on hepatic lipid metabolism changes in adriamy cin(ADR)-treated rats. ADR treatment significantly increased the plasma levels of lipid peroxide in rats. But this increase was reduced by dietary supplementation of coenzyme $Q_{10}$ or vitamin E. Catalase and glutathione peroxidase activities were not greatly changed by ADR treatment, but the activities were significantly increased by dietary coenzyme $Q_{10}$. There was a tendency of lower superoxide dismutase activity in ADR-treated rats. However, coenzyme $Q_{10}$ administration induced this enzyme activity. The contents of cholesterol and phospholipid in liver were elevated by ADR-treated. Dietary coenzyme $Q_{10}$ reduced the increased hepatic cholesterol content in ADR-treated rat.
