Therapeutic strategies targeting endothelial function in humans: clinical implications.
Persistent oxidative stress in the vascular wall may lead to endothelial dysfunction, a pathological process widely implicated in the morbidities observed in a spectrum of cardiovascular disease. The production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is regulated by various oxidase enzymes and mitochondrial electron transport mechanisms. Nitric oxide (NO) is a key mediator of endothelial function via its effect on endothelium dependent vascular relaxation. Therapeutic interventions aimed to increase...Expand abstract
