Hardbound. Written by international experts, this outstanding collection of papers is based on the First International Symposium on the Biological Roles of Reactive Oxygen Species in Skin, held in Kyoto, Japan in May 1986. One of the more fascinating topics in biology and medicine today, reactive oxygen species are believed to play an important role in skin inflammation, carcinogenesis, and ageing. THE BIOLOGICAL ROLE OF REACTIVE OXYGEN SPECIES IN SKIN presents recent research findings on a broad range of topics related to the pathogenesis and biological aspects of skin-related diseases. Physicians, dermatologists, pharmacologists, biochemists, hematologists, immunologists, pediatricians, and all others interested in the study and care of skin disorders will find that THE BIOLOGICAL ROLE OF REACTIVE OXYGEN SPECIES IN SKIN is a useful and valuable source of pertinent information.
