Vascular injury is initiated by oxidant injury to the vessel wall. This volume is organized around the role of oxidant damage in this disease process and provides a collection of the most recent studies, representing various disciplines, that can serve as the basis for further improvements in our understanding and control of cardiovascular and cerebral vascular disease.
