Bentham Briefs in Biomedicine and Pharmacotherapy brings new trends and techniques in pharmacology and medical biochemistry to the forefront through unique volumes. Each volume provides a brief review of selected topics, written by scientific experts. The book series is essential reading for graduate students and researchers in pharmacology and life sciences as well as medical professionals seeking knowledge for research oriented projects.

The first volume, Oxidative Stress and Natural Antioxidants, is a compilation of articles about free radicals (which are extremely reactive, short-lived molecules with unpaired electron valency), and antioxidants (which are stabilizing agents of free radicals in the body). The volume presents 17 chapters on the biochemistry of free radicals and antioxidants, with contributions from over 60 scientists. Readers will understand the basic and clinical aspects of free radical biomedicine, the role of antioxidants in neutralizing free radicals through physiological homeostasis, as well as the range of natural compounds which can be used to combat oxidative stress. The chapters also cover special topics such as recent advances in preparation methods of antioxidants, and industrial applications of antioxidants. The range of topics in this volume provide a consolidated reference for a broad set of readers on the subject.


I am pleased to write this foreword for the e-book entitled ‘Oxidative Stress and Natural Antioxidants’. This outstanding endeavor by the co-editors represents a multi-disciplinary coverage of all aspects of oxidative stress and the role of anti-oxidants in this fundamental phenomenon. This e-book represents an effective compilation of chapters on the fundamentals of oxidative stress and the role of anti-oxidants in health and disease. The authors deserve credit for their time and effort to contribute excellent chapters relevant to their individual expertise. These chapters include excellent discussions on oxidative stress in human physiology, redox homeostasis, functions of free radicals and intrinsic cellular mechanisms for naturally occurring anti-oxidants. I am confident that this book will be a valuable addition to the bookshelves of teaching faculty, established investigators and young graduate students. I wish all, the success for the launch of this book.
