"Recommended not only to pharmacologists but also to all those in related disciplines." --NATURE
"The works do represent an extensive compilation of recent data by outstanding researchers in this area. They are generally scientifically excellent, the bibliographies are good, and the individual reports are clear, concise, and extremely well illustrated." --H.E. Kaufmann in CHEMOTHERAPY
"Superb reading material." --JOURNAL OF PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES
Praise for the Volume
"...a must in the library of researchers in the area of free radical biology... it presents an invaluable indepth critical coverage of topics inherent in the 'antioxidant literature' and ranging from basic physical chemistry concepts to clinical therapy, prevention, and epidemiological perspectives... an excellent book, highly recommended, on topics of great current interest." --Enrique Cadenas for FREE RADICAL RESEARCH
"Comprehensive, concise, well-referenced and original, this book also includes appropriate illustrations to explain the text... This book covers the complete spectrum of the topics dealing with molecular actions of natural and synthetic antioxidants and their potential role in disease states and therapeutic strategies." --Arshad Rahman, PhD, Rush Medical College of Rush University for DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS
"Comprehensive, concise, well-referenced and original, this book also includes appropriate illustrations to explain the text. The layout is simple and appealing... Weighted numerical score: 90 - 4 stars!" --Arshad Rahman in DOODY PUBLISHING
