Nitric oxide (NO) is a diffusible gas with diverse roles in human physiology and disease. Significant progress in the understanding of its biological effects has taken place in recent years. This has led to a better understanding of the pathobiology of pulmonary hypertension (PH) and the development of new therapies. This article provides an overview of the NO physiology and its role in the pathobiology of lung diseases, particularly PH. We also discuss current and emerging specific treatments… CONTINUE READING
