The stress has been implicated in the process of aging and the pathogeneses of more than sixty pathological conditions including neurodegenerative diseases, stroke, heart disease, cancers, and diabetes.
Free radical metabolism and the mechanisms of free radicals in diseases and aging, aiming at understanding the interactions between free radicals and other cellular molecules and finding efficient and specific treatments.
