Booknews
The series highlights natural antioxidants and artificial antioxidants that mimic natural systems. The present volume provides a comprehensive account of the molecular mechanisms underlying the multiple functions of biothiols, with emphasis on their interaction with oxidants and the biological and clinical implications of this process. The topics covered range from the reactions of thiyl radicals in in vitro models to complex processes in clinical medicine and diverse therapeutic approaches involving thiols. Annotation c.
