Mitochondrial medicine deals with diseases that are related to mitochondrial dysfunction due to a number of causes from free radical damage to genetic mutation. This book is based on extensive data gathered over 30 years of clinical and experimental research. In it, internationally recognized authors share their experience in various fields of their expertise and guide readers through the disease process, from basic biochemical mechanisms to diagnosis to therapeutic aspects.
Divided into four fundamental parts: metabolism, diseases, diagnose and therapy
Based on mitochondrial estimations during many years in clinical and experimental medicine
Comprehensive overview on the topic
Intended for post- and pre-graduate education
