Editorial Reviews

Emerging from the First International Conference on Oxidative Stress and Aging, held in Hawaii in 1994, which brought together leading scientists in the fields of reactive oxygen species and molecular gerontology, 36 papers report on progress in the area. The topics include oxidative stress and cellular senescence; genetic stability, damage, and DNA repair; genetics and lifespan; proteins and lipid oxidation; mitochondria; aging-related diseases and cancer; aging- related diseases and neurodegeneration; nutrition; and nitric oxide.
