NEW YORK, Jan. 17 (GenomeWeb News) - Oxis International said last week that it is in discussions with a number of researchers and university laboratories to research the role of oxidative-stress biomarkers in human and animal disease.

According to the company, the initial focus of the project will be on bovine spongiform encephalopathy; Creutzfeld-Jacob disease; type II diabetes; atherosclerosis; hepatitis; and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease.
