∗ macromolecular mechanisms of injury and the role of antioxidants;
∗ gene expression and cell mediated mechanisms of toxicity expression; and,
∗ human and environmental health effects.
Written by experts in the field, Biomolecular Free Radical Toxicity: Causes and Prevention will be invaluable to researchers specialising in food and nutrition–based toxicology, biomolecular sciences, biochemistry, genetics, environmental biomonitoring, drug metabolism and carcinogenesis.
