L-NMMA Dose-response Study in Healthy Subjects

2014-08-27 03:15:49 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of different levels of nitric oxide inhibition on blood pressure and arterial stiffness in healthy subjects. L-NMMA, an inhibitor of the nitric oxide synthase, is administered as bolus injection followed by continuous infusion, and is expected to raise blood pressure and arterial stiffness according to L-NMMA dose.
