Free-radical brain damage in MODS

It is ³known² that free radicals play a large part 
in traumatic, vascular and cryo- brain damage.  It 
also seems established that cytokineses, etc. in 
multiple organ dysfunction syndrome/DIC (MODS) cross 
the BBB and open the BBB to allow free radical access 
to the brain.

Question:  is anyone out there studying the above 
situation?  I have spent a day or so on MEDLARS and 
don¹t find any articles.  Is there anywhere on the 
Œnet I should be asking?
