  • Evidence is mounting that production of these species by the cells is required for their function from growth to apoptosis and numerous signaling pathways have been identified where the participation of ROS and RNS is apparent
  • The field is no more limited to the group of free radical aficionados who have pioneered this area of research but has gone mainstream
  • While it is satisfactory for those of us who have been working on this topic for a long time, it has the risk of becoming the “fashionable” motto where those molecules, still mysterious to some, become responsible for everything and anything
