Free Radicals in Biology and Medicine has become a classic text in the field of free radical and antioxidant research since its first publication in 1985.
This latest edition has been comprehensively rewritten and updated (over 80% of the text is new), while maintaining the clarity of its predecessor. There is expanded coverage of isoprostanes and related compounds, mechanisms of oxidative damage to DNA and proteins (and the repair of such damage), the free radical theory of aging and the roles played by reactive species in signal transduction, cell death, human reproduction, and other important biological events. Greater emphasis has also been placed on the methods available to measure reactive species and oxidative damage (and their potential pitfalls), as well as the importance of antioxidants in the human diet.
This book is recommended as a comprehensive introduction to the field for students, clinicians and researchers, and an invaluable companion to all those interested in the role of free radicals in the life and biomedical sciences.

`Review from previous edition "...This new tome has exceeded all my expectations." "...Free Radicals in Biology and Medicine...has always been compulsive reading for all in this area of research whether undergraduate, postgraduate undertaking a PhD programme, clinician, or scientist and a veyr
popular text for teachers and students alike...The new volume not only continues this tradition, it is also a superb triumph of a textbook from two eminent leaders in the field and a must for anyone wanting to come to grips with the diverse area of free radical research and its relevance to biology
and human disease, or for experts to bring themselves up to date with the areas that they do not normally focus on."'
Prof. Catherine Rice-Evans, Guy's, King's and St. Thomas's School of Medicine and Dentistry .
`'this publication conforms the needs of all groups of readers. The 3rd edition of the famous textbook of bioradical science is a remarkable book. In comparison with the 1st Edition it is considerably altered, expanded (936 vs 543 Pages) and updated ... I am not uncritical in my sincere
admiration of this unusual book ... If you consider buying a book on reactive oxygen species, this is number one'
