Endothelial dysfunction is considered as a major risk factor of cardiovascular complications of type I and types II diabetes. Impaired endothelium-dependent vasodilatation can be directly linked to a decreased synthesis of the endothelium-derived nitric oxide (NO) and/or an increase in the production of reactive oxygen species such as superoxide… CONTINUE READING
