Raloxifene protects endothelial cell function against oxidative stress.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Maintaining a delicate balance between the generation of nitric oxide (NO) and removal of reactive oxygen species (ROS) within the vascular wall is crucial to the physiological regulation of vascular tone. Increased production of ROS reduces the effect and/or bioavailability of NO, leading to an impaired endothelial function. This… (More)
