This volume features a discussion of recent advances related to the cellular and molecular mechanisms mediating the generation of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species and their role in the pathogenesis of human disease, with a particular focus on the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. The volume brings together contributions from basic and clinical scientists in the field with unique approaches and research efforts.

The information presented may help facilitate future collaborative studies that will lead to new insights into the pathogenesis of cardiopulmonary diseases characterized by excessive oxidative and nitrosative stress and may suggest innovative directions for therapeutic intervention.
