Özet

Abstract 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.
