Oxidative stress and antioxidants: diagnosis and therapy
The goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for scientific and technical exchanges of the recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of oxidative stress with implications in human health. The section will bring together scientists from different fields (chemistry, biochemistry, biology, materials science) to discuss the latest developments, challenges and opportunities in this exciting area of research. Novel therapeutic approaches for the treatment of oxidative stress diseases as well as strategies for measuring oxidative damage (DNA damage, release of reactive oxygen species, etc) in vivo and in vitro will be discussed. The symposium will also include presentations on mechanistic studies of natural antioxidants and investigations of new materials possessing interesting antioxidant/free radical scavenging properties as therapeutic agents in the treatment of medical diseases related to reactive oxygen species, such as spinal cord injury, stroke and neurological disorders. Topics of particular interest include (but are not limited to):
- Biological mechanisms in oxidative stress related diseases
- Genotoxicity and cytotoxicity
- Evaluation of antioxidant activity, oxidative damage and reactive oxygen species
- Therapeutic approaches involving antioxidants
- Novel antioxidants and their mechanism of action
- Nanoparticle-induced oxidative stress
- The role of antioxidants in human health
