OBJECTIVE Nitric oxide (NO) has been suggested to have antiatherosclerotic effects. It has also been demonstrated that there is a greater basal release of endothelium derived relaxing factor (EDRF) in female as compared to male rabbit aorta, which also might have beneficial effects in atherosclerosis.

We tested classically used organic nitrovasodilators such as s-nitroso-n-acetyl-D,L-penicillamine, 3-morpholino-sydnonimine, pentaerythrityl-tetranitrate, isosorbide-dinitrate, isosorbide-mononitrate, glyceryl-trinitrate on different isolated conductive arterial and venous blood vessels of the same species (rabbit). We found an up to two orders of magnitude(More)
