BACKGROUND The present study aimed to elucidate the effect of long-term treatment with nitroglycerin (NTG) on the bioavailability of nitric oxide (NO) examined by a catheter-type NO sensor. The study also examined whether these effects could be modified by an antioxidant, an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, or an angiotensin II type 1 receptor… CONTINUE READING
