Abstract Knowledge of the chemistry behind induction of DNA damage and processing mechanisms is considered very important not only for the understanding of the biological significance but also for clinical applications. In this Special Issue, we have compiled a number of succinct reviews and original research articles, by top experts in their fields. The articles discuss and/or explore the current status of knowledge and new advances in the chemical and molecular pathways related to the induction of high oxidative stress, DNA damage and its repair in human cells and tissues. Experimental and theoretical insights are provided of how the DNA repair processes maybe modulated by gene mutations and other factors like temperature and radiation quality. 2011 Elsevier B.V.
