The multifaceted aspects of antioxidants summarized in this review; their general charactarestics, properties
and clinical ways are discussed. An important aspect in discovery of new antioxidants is the correlation between
the structure of antioxidants and their activity. Their role in tissue injury and types of defense mechanisms gives us
the opportinity to understand the role of antioxidants in disease progression and defense mechanisms. Although
diseases that are been associated with oxidative stress and treatment with antioxidant supplements are present, the
role of antioxidants in pathological conditions are unspesified yet.
