Free Radical Mechanisms of Tissue Injury and Mechanisms of Protection

  • T. F. Slater
  • K. H. Cheeseman


There has been an increasing interest during the last ten years or so in the contributions of free radical reactions to the overall metabolic perturbations that result in tissue damage and disease. For a historical overview of free radical-mediated disturbances see Slater (1971); more recent references and comments can be obtained from Slater (1984).
