about this item
Liver Pathophysiology: Therapies and Antioxidants is a comprehensive reference that focuses on the participation of oxidative stress in several acute and chronic liver pathologies. It uses an integral approach to the role of free radicals in the pathogenesis of liver diseases, and how their negative effects may be abrogated by the use of antioxidants. With coverage of the general concepts of liver diseases, free radical biology, and redox signaling, it demonstrates the use of in vitro and in vivo animal models and human pathologies, including histopathological slides to increase understanding of alterations.
The book also describes the effects of various synthetic and natural antioxidants on diseases and their possible mechanisms of action. This important reference will increase the reader's understanding of the pathogenesis process of oxidative stress, its diagnosis, and the important points of interventional strategies necessary to prevent occurrence.
