Cellular Redox State and Endothelial Dysfunction in Mildly Hyperhomocysteinemic Cystathionine &bgr;‐Synthase‐Deficient Mice
TLDR
Mild hyperhomocysteinemia leads to endothelial dysfunction in association with decreased bioavailable nitric oxide, and increasing the cellular thiol and reduced glutathione pools and increasing GPx‐1 activity restores endothelial function.
Screening Mammography for Women 40 to 49 Years of Age: A Clinical Practice Guideline from the American College of Physicians

TLDR

TLDR
