Antioxidants and heart problems, moment version addresses a posh yet very well timed and interesting challenge in cardiovascular drugs. it's written by way of famous specialists within the fields of atherosclerosis and antioxidants. it may be of curiosity not just to academicians but additionally to practising physicians. the 1st 5 chapters overview the final recommendations of oxidative tension and their dating to lipid metabolism, endothelial disorder, genetics and transcriptional elements. the subsequent seven chapters describe lately outlined markers of oxidative tension, pharmacological compounds with antioxidant task, traditional antioxidants present in micronutrients and in nutrient-rich diets, and studies the hot proof for his or her efficacy or loss of efficacy in sufferers with heart problems or cardiovascular possibility components. The final seven chapters speak about the aptitude healing merits of antioxidants in a couple of cardiovascular stipulations which come with atherosclerosis, restenosis after percutaneous coronary intervention, significant cardiovascular probability elements comparable to high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus and dyslipidemia, and left ventricular disorder and congestive center failure.
