Nitric oxide synthase isoenzyme activities in a premature piglet model of necrotizing enterocolitis: effects of nitrergic manipulation


Nitric oxide (NO) plays a major role in gut mucosal protection and motility. Having demonstrated the protective effects of intravenous L-arginine (L-arg) and the NO donor, sodium nitroprusside (SNP), in an in-vivo premature piglet intraluminal model of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) that incorporates both mucosal damage and intestinal dysmotility, we… (More)
