Free radicals and reactive oxygen species produced by ionization radiation are the major objects induced the radiation damage of biologic targets. Therefore the radio-protective properties of antioxidants are taken more attention in recent years. In this paper, we review the new development of some important antioxidants such as SODs, derivatives of N2O, new small molecule compounds and new crude compounds.

Key words: Antioxidant, Reactive oxygen spices (ROS), Radio-protection
