Cysteine-Containing Nitric Oxide Donor, in Rat Carotid Artery Intimal Injury


We studied the effects of an organic nitric oxide (NO) donor SPM-5185 in a rat carotid artery intimal injury model. Seven days after injury, the two end segments of the injured carotid arteries were studied for endothelial release of NO, and the middle segments were used for histological measurement of the intimal-to-medial (I/M) ratio and scanning electron… (More)
