Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Oxidative stress is a key hallmark of the progression of various diseases. An imbalance between reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and the antioxidant defence mechanisms of our body leads to oxidative stress. A high level of ROS is toxic to cells and may lead to damage to various cellular components, induce lipid peroxidation, activate immune cells etc. ROS are unstable reactive free radicals containing oxygen produced by various enzymes such as xanthine oxidase, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate oxidase, and lipoxygenases in cells, including those produced by mitochondria or due to the uncoupling of nitric oxide synthase in vascular cells. Obesity, environmental pollutants, certain medications, exposure to radiation, cigarette smoking, chronic alcohol consumption, and the inhalation of/exposure to certain industrial chemicals or pesticides are risk factors for oxidative stress. Our body's immune system also produces ROS to combat pathogenic infections. Researchers are interested in targeting ROS production using various plant-based or synthetic promising antioxidants. The role of mitochondrial targeted antioxidants in ameliorating oxidative damage has recently been explored by various research labs around the globe.

This Special Issue of the journal International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, “Oxidative Stress/Antioxidant Research”, aims to cover recent research updates to highlight the promising findings in the field of oxidative stress/antioxidant research. Original articles, communications, and reviews related to these topics are welcome for submission.
