About this book


Joint diseases are a major public health concern. Reactive oxygen species are mediators in pathways associated with joint tissue injury. Oxidative Stress in Applied Basic Research and Clinical Practice: Studies on Arthritis and Joint Disorders provides background to understanding the role of reactive oxygen species in joint diseases, as well as therapeutic strategies for their regulation. International experts discuss recent advances on experimental and clinical data focused on free radical-mediated mechanisms of disease. The book also addresses the protective role of antioxidants against the insult of reactive oxygen species in rheumatic diseases.
