Free Radical Mechanisms of Tissue Injury
This timely volume describes the contributions of free radicals and reactive oxygen species to disease processes in a variety of tissues. Topics include the roles of lipid peroxide-modified lipoproteins in atherosclerosis, peroxidation products in retinopathy, reactive oxygen species and neutrophils in mycardial ischemia-reflow injury, iron and reactive oxygen species in hemoglobin-mediated CNS damage and in asbestos-mediated lung injury. Critical reviews examine the evidence for radical species in ethanol-induced liver injury and in muscular dystrophy. The wealth of new information presented makes this book valuable for teaching and an important reference volume for researchers exploring problems in human disease.
