BISAC: MED000000

This book presents new research in the study of oxidative stress. Topics discussed include pharmacological treatments in myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury; oxidative stress in neurodenegerative disorders, hyptertension, and the cardiovascular system; the role of antioxidant supplementation in ischemic stroke; mitochondria at the crossroads of cancer and oxidative stress; and the influence of aerobic exercise training on postprandial oxidative stress.
