The discovery of new ways to protect the body from oxidative damage — whether caused by radiation, aging, or disease — has acquired new momentum in science, as well as in popular health culture. Presentations collected in these proceedings cover all aspects of current reactive oxygen species research including: antioxidants; oxidative stress in tumors and in Alzheimer's disease; roles of free radicals; HIV and proteases; a scientific review of the impact of anitoxidants in nutrition; and other topics. The participants' survey of the state of ROS knowledge points to a projection of research pathways.
