Overview

Biomolecular Free Radical Toxicity: Causes and Prevention provides a comprehensive overview of biomolecular injury. By discussing recent research and providing interpretations of the available data, this unique and timely book explores the causes of biomolecular injury and the possible routes to its prevention. Split into three sections, the book covers:

• macromolecular mechanisms of injury and the role of antioxidants;

• gene expression and cell mediated mechanisms of toxicity expression; and,

• human and environmental health effects.
Written by experts in the field, Biomolecular Free Radical Toxicity: Causes and Prevention will be invaluable to researchers specialising in food and nutrition-based toxicology, biomolecular sciences, biochemistry, genetics, environmental biomonitoring, drug metabolism and carcinogenesis.
