The role of nitric oxide (NO) in the changes in blood pressure and plasma levels of nitrate and nitrite (NOx) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) were determined over a 5-h period in anesthesized rats after intravenous administration of S. typhosa endotoxin (LPS, 4 mg/kg). Rats treated with LPS showed a sustained fall in blood pressure accompanied by an increase in plasma NOx and ALT. Forty percent of these rats died during the experiment. There was no change in blood pressure in rats treated… CONTINUE READING
