Initial research and product development has been in the delivery of inhaled nitric oxide
gas for therapeutic use.
But more than that, it contains 1-citrulline to help with the nitric oxide
To assess the effect of NOS inhibitors, we needed a reliable method to measure nitric oxide
Prednisolone treatment was found to be associated with the rapid decrease in urinary nitric oxide
metabolites and clinical improvement in leprosy reactional patients mainly with RR.
Inhaled nitric oxide
therapy has been shown to improve the oxygenation in acute hypoxaemic respiratory failure by increasing the blood flow to better aerated regions of the lungs, thereby reducing intrapulmonary shunt and improving ventilation-perfusion matching.
Perspectives series: nitric oxide
and nitric oxide
The nitric oxide
in cigarette puffs is caustic to airways and lungs.
Many patients with asthma symptoms have normal lung function tests but high levels of exhaled nitric oxide
A study comparing both tests showed that both had good sensitivity and specificity, but exhaled nitric oxide
measurements were easier and quicker to perform (Am.
The drug is BiDil, an experimental combination of two already approved drugs, isosorbide dinitrate (Isordil), which provides nitric oxide
, and hydralazine (Apresoline), which helps the body better use nitric oxide
The research: Prescription drugs that increase nitric oxide
clearly make a difference.
(NO), a gas that was once believed to present only in the atmosphere, is produced in human tissues by the enzyme nitric oxide
synthase (NOS), with L-arginine as the substrate.
