Description: Redox Biology

Recent advances in the biochemistry of redox-active species and radicals are beginning to be translated into improvements in prevention and treatment of cancer. Traditionally, reactive species such as superoxide, hydrogen peroxide and nitric oxide (NO) are associated with toxicity; however, NO is useful in the treatment of angina and cardiovascular disease. Also, NO is involved in cancer tumor angiogenesis and apoptosis of cancer cells. This course is an overview presenting how redox-active species and radicals are generated; their effects on the cellular and physiological level, how they alter carcinogenesis, angiogenesis and proliferation in animal models of cancer, and how NO alters patient imaging profiles and response to cancer therapy. It consists of two 1-hour lectures with ample time for discussion and analysis. The participation of postdoctoral and clinical fellows interested in redox biology is encouraged.
