BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to assess luminal nitric oxide (NO) levels in the oesophagus during baseline and acidic conditions and to clarify the sources of such oesophageal NO formation. METHODS Healthy volunteers received an intra-oesophageal infusion of either HCl (100 mM) or NaCl (50 mM) on two separate study days. After a low nitrate diet, nitrate load or no dietary restrictions/pretreatment, direct intraluminal measurements of NO formation were performed using a… CONTINUE READING
