Induction of NOS-2 in macrophages and smooth muscles within vascular wall with concomittant suppression of endothelial NOS-3 activity is considered to be a hallmark of vascular inflammation that triggers atherogenesis. Accordingly, drugs designed to reverse these changes should not only support vaning function of NOS-3 but also suppress proinflammatory NO production by NOS-2. It means that using selective inhibitors of induction of NOS-2 (they spare ex definitione constitutive activity of NOS-3… CONTINUE READING
