Reversal of endotoxin-mediated shock by NG-methyl-L-arginine, an inhibitor of nitric oxide synthesis.

Abstract

Septic shock is a life-threatening condition that results from exposure to bacterial endotoxin. It is manifested by cardiovascular collapse and mediated by the release of cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor. Some of these cytokines cause the release of vasoactive substances. In the present study, administration of 40 microgram/kg of bacterial endotoxin… (More)
