By Ulf Landmesser, Helmut Drexler (auth.), Martial G. Bourassa, Jean-Claude Tardif (eds.)

Antioxidants and heart problems, moment variation addresses a fancy yet very well timed and interesting challenge in cardiovascular drugs. it truly is written through famous specialists within the fields of atherosclerosis and antioxidants. it's going to be of curiosity not just to academicians but additionally to training physicians. the 1st 5 chapters evaluate the final strategies of oxidative rigidity and their dating to lipid metabolism, endothelial disorder, genetics and transcriptional components. the subsequent seven chapters describe lately outlined markers of oxidative tension, pharmacological compounds with antioxidant task, average antioxidants present in micronutrients and in nutrient-rich diets, and stories the hot facts for his or her efficacy or loss of efficacy in sufferers with heart problems or cardiovascular hazard components. The final seven chapters talk about the capability healing advantages of antioxidants in a couple of cardiovascular stipulations which come with atherosclerosis, restenosis after percutaneous coronary intervention, significant cardiovascular danger elements comparable to high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus and dyslipidemia, and left ventricular disorder and congestive center failure.

Martial G. Bourassa, M.D. and Jean-Claude Tardif, M.D. are affiliated with the Montreal center Institute, study middle and division of drugs, school of medication, college of Montreal, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
