Endothelial dysfunction appears to be a key early event in a number of important cardiovascular disease states, including atherosclerosis and hypertension. Testing endothelial function in vivo has proved challenging. Although the endothelium releases a number of products, no single blood test has yet proved useful to determine normal endothelial function or early abnormalities. The most common test of endothelial function used to date in vivo depends on measuring endothelium-dependent… CONTINUE READING
