    Over the past 10 years it has become clear that intact vascular function, especially at the level of the endothelium, is paramount in the prevention or delay of cardiovascular disease. It has also become clear that insulin itself, in addition to its metabolic actions, directly effects vascular...

    Aims/hypothesis. Patients with diabetes are characterised by endothelial dysfunction and cardiovascular mortality. In particular endothelium-derived nitric oxide has emerged as a first line mechanism against atherosclerosis. Hyperglycaemia causes oxygen radical stress but has also been...

    A high level of nitric oxide (NO) produced by inducible NO synthase (iNOS) is involved in pancreatic beta-cell dysfunction and apoptosis. In the present study, we examined whether iNOS is also expressed in beta cells after induction of acute pancreatitis (AP) in the rat. Pancreatic islets taken...

    Insulin, contraction, and the nitric oxide (NO) donor, sodium nitroprusside (SNP), all increase glucose transport in skeletal muscle. Some reports suggest that NO is a critical mediator of insulin- and/or contraction-stimulated transport. To determine if the mechanism leading to NO-stimulated...

    Basic science research on erectile physiology has been devoted to investigating the pathogenesis of erectile dysfunction (ED) and has led to the conclusion that ED is predominately a disease of vascular origin. It is well recognized that the incidence of ED dramatically increases in men who...

    The article cites a study which reveals that wounds in patients with diabetes heal very slow due to the deficiency of nitric oxide at the wound site. The study found that the application of a molsidomine, a nitric oxide donating substance, to wounds formed on diabetic rats had a considerable...

    An encyclopedia entry for the medical term "nitric oxide," which refers to a soluble gas that is produced in the human body and is found in expired air at a concentration of around 10 parts per billion, is presented.
