Abstract

Abstract Oxygen free radicals are very reactive molecules which can react with every cellular component. They are normally produced in organisms being involved in various biologic reactions. However, too high levels of these partially-reduced O 2 species can give rise to functional and morphologic disturbances in cells. There is evidence to implicate oxygen free radicals as important pathologic mediators in many human disease processes.
