This mini-review highlights the chemical and cytoprotective properties of various hydralazine analogues that block the induction of cell death by acrolein, a highly toxic contributor to “carbonyl stress” during a diverse range of human diseases. Recent work on the action of hydralazine against various carbonyl-mediated pathologies is also reviewed.

Keywords: Carbonyl stress, acrolein, protein adducts, hydralazine
