Oral L-arginine therapy reverses endothelial dysfunction and attenuates high blood pressure in hypertensive cardiac transplant recipients. L-arginine corrects derangements in the vascular endothelial nitric oxide (NO)-dependent signaling pathway. Our data support the concept that cardiac transplant recipients use excess endogenous NO from L-arginine… CONTINUE READING
