Biochemical Mechanisms of Oxidant-Induced Cell Injury
With the current knowledge that oxidants are generated in inflammatory responses of several kinds and participate in the development of tissue injury, it is clearly important to gain greater insight into the mechanisms by which oxidants damage cells and extracellular tissues. For the past few years we have studied the effects on target cells of oxidants that are generated by stimulated leukocytes,in order to gain insight into the mechanisms by which externally generated oxidants cause functional and structural damage to these target cells.
