Quantitative Determination of Fatty Acid Hydroperoxides in Vivo
The toxicity of tetrachloromethane, acetaminophen, adriamycin and alcohol is believed to result from oxidative degradation of polyunsaturated fatty1acids of lipid membranes, usually referred to as “lipid peroxidation”; its participation in atherosclerosis and carcinogenicity has also been suggested2.
