Idebenone is an analogue of coenzyme Q10 with antioxidant properties.
The present study investigated the antioxidant activity of idebenone in the rescue of acoustic trauma.
Noise-induced hearing loss was provoked in guinea pigs in which idebenone was injected.
The results suggested an antioxidant function of idebenone in protection from noise-induced hearing loss.
