    Cytochrome P450 enzymes (P450s) are involved in cancer development and treatment due to their roles in the oxidative metabolism of various endogenous (e.g. oestrogen) and exogenous (e.g. tamoxifen) compounds. It is ...
  • Investigation of hypoxia and hyperglycaemia mediated DNA damage in human endothelial cells. 

    Weidmann, Anita Elaine (Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2008-03)
    Chronic complications of diabetes mellitus are a pathological consequence of unregulated levels of blood glucose leading to disorders of the vascular system. When investigating the vascular complications the changes in ...
