Overview

Oxidative stress induced by the over-production of free radicals and other reactive species is implicated in the pathophysiology of a wide range of human diseases. A detailed investigation is made into the evidence implicating oxygen radicals in the etiology of eleven different human diseases or conditions. World renowned experts from each discipline review the data supporting this involvement and discuss the full implications that result. Topics covered include Alzheimer's disease, cerebral ischemia, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, atherosclerosis, ARDS, critical care medicine, and cancer.
An invaluable resource for those seeking up-to-date information on the evidence supporting the involvement of oxygen radicals in human disease, this text also instigates theoretical discussion of future research endeavors.
