Cellular and environmental stressors have been shown to contribute to the etiology and pathophysiology of disease states in humans as well as to affect the functioning and metabolism of plants and aquatic organisms. This Annals volume presents a collection of papers stemming from the “Third International Conference on Cellular Environmental Stressors in Biology and Medicine: Focus on Redox Reactions,” held on June 25–27, 2014, in Ferrara, Italy. The papers cover a range of topics, including pro-oxidant and antioxidant processes in aquatic invertebrates; oxidative metabolism of chemical pollutants in marine organisms; expected and unexpected effects of pharmaceuticals in the environment on aquatic fauna; redox signaling and stress tolerance in plants, with a focus on vitamin E; nitric oxide and plant iron homeostasis; the link between scavenger receptor B1 expression and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) pathogenesis; molecular pathogenesis of cigarette smoking–induced stable COPD; the health risks, social impact, and environmental consequences of E-cigarettes; molecular damage and lung tumors in cigarette smoke–exposed mice; linking ambient particulate matter pollution effects with oxidative biology and immune responses; and inflammatory and redox reactions in colorectal carcinogenesis.
