Introduction

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.

Preface

Oxidative Stress and Natural Antioxidants” presents the one pot solution for the interested readers ranging from an understanding of oxidative stress, recent advances in preparation methods, characterization, and applications of antioxidants. Taken altogether, the gathered information in this volume will cover an array of topics highlighting the importance of natural antioxidants in various oxidative stress associated diseases.

The scientific framework of this e-book contains chapters by eminent experts with in-depth knowledge of antioxidants and oxidative stress. The chapters comprise the role of reactive oxygen species and environmental contaminants in redox homeostasis with cellular mechanisms in oxidative stress that trigger the development and progression of many diseases. The literature includes the extraction, profiling, and characterization of antioxidants via different procedures and screening assays. Further, the chapters deliberate the role of antioxidants in human physiology, redox homeostasis, intrinsic cellular mechanisms, and their therapeutic potential with industrial prospects. Authors whose names appear on the chapters have remarkably contributed to the scientific work in this ebook and are responsible and accountable for any scientific queries or questions.

We believe that the chapters published in this volume will enrich the understanding of interdisciplinary domains of natural products as well as offer insights into emerging avenues in drug discovery trends.
