Biomarkers for Antioxidant Defense and Oxidative Damage : Principles and Practical Applications Hardback
Edited by Giancarlo Aldini, Kyung-Jin Yeum, Etsuo Niki, Robert M. Russell
Discovering sensitive and specific biomarkers for systemic oxidative damage is essential to better understand the role of oxidative stress in human disease.
Once these roles are more clearly understood we are able to identify novel drug and nutraceutical targets.
This volume goes beyond conventional analytical methods of measuring antioxidant activity overall and provides insight to the discovery of biomarkers that reveal information on specific areas of oxidative stress.
Contributed by an international list of experts, the book, organized into 5 parts, describes both conventional biomarkers and recent developments in this area.
