Description

The Liver: Oxidative Stress and Dietary Antioxidants takes a novel approach to the science of oxidative stress in liver disease by recognizing that diseases are multifactorial and oxidative stress is a single component. It highlights oxidative stress in relation to other processes, such as apoptosis, cell signaling and receptor mediated responses, and includes the therapeutic usage of natural antioxidants in the diet and food matrix, along with coverage of pharmacological and natural agents designed to counteract oxidative stress. Written for research scientists, gastroenterologists, food scientists, hepatologists and physicians, this trans-disciplinary guide will help advance medical sciences and enable new preventative and treatment strategies.
