Nitric oxides in plasma, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid in patients with severe falciparum malaria.

Abstract:

It has been suggested that nitric oxide (NO) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of severe falciparum malaria. Since NO has a very short half-life, nitrate and nitrite (NOx) levels, stable metabolites of NO, are used as measures of NO production. We measured plasma NOx levels in 24 adults with severe falciparum malaria on the Thai-Burmese border. After correction for renal function, there was no correlation between plasma NOx levels, or the total amount of NOx excreted in the urine, a...
