Plant-based foods are the staple of every recognized heart-healthy diet because they elevate natural nitric oxide levels, a known cardio-protective factor. Saliva Nitric Oxide Test Strips by Berkeley Test can now be analyzed with the iPhone Cardio Diet Tracker app that allows individuals to optimize their intake of nitric oxide-potent vegetables to support the goal of improving cardiovascular health. Berkeley, California (PRWEB) July 09, 2013 In 1998, the Nobel Prize for medicine was...

-University of Granada researchers have tested melatonin analogues in rats that inhibit the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS), which is involved in the development of the diseases referred above. -This enzyme is also involved in other conditions as inflammatory bowel disease or rheumatoid arthritis, as well as in neurodegenerative conditions as Huntington's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. University of Granada researchers have tested melatonin analogues in rats as it inhibits...

Findings shed light on how bacteria form protective biofilms Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have unraveled a complex chemical pathway that enables bacteria to form clusters called biofilms. Such improved understanding might eventually aid the development of new treatments targeting biofilms, which are involved in a wide variety of human infections and help bacteria resist antibiotics. The report explains how nitric oxide, a signaling molecule involved in the immune system,...

Naturally produced by the body, nitric oxide disrupts pathogens' metabolism A new target for nitric oxide has been revealed in studies of how it inhibits the growth of Salmonella. This bacterium is a common cause of food-poisoning. "Nitric oxide is naturally produced in the nose and the gut and other tissues in the body to ward off infection," explained the senior author of the paper, Dr. Ferric Fang. He is a University of Washington (UW) professor of laboratory medicine, microbiology and...

The surprising finding in skin cells could lead to better drugs Scientists from The Scripps Research Institute have identified a surprising new molecular pathway in skin cells that is involved in wound-healing and sensory communication. The new study, published in Nature Communications on June 28, 2011, shows that in this process skin cells produce nitric oxide, a versatile signaling molecule involved in temperature-sensing and wound-healing. This alternative, oxygen-independent mode of...

Exercise both reduces the risk of a heart attack and protects the heart from injury if a heart attack does occur. For years, doctors have been trying to dissect how this second benefit of exercise works, with the aim of finding ways to protect the heart after a heart attack. Researchers at Emory University School of Medicine have identified the ability of the heart to produce and store nitric oxide as an important way in which exercise protects the heart from injury. Nitric oxide, a...

Disorders of the circulatory system- vascular diseases- are common in the developed world, and can lead to heart attacks, strokes and even death. However, treatments for these disorders, such as bypass surgery and angioplasty, themselves induce vascular injury, after which the cells of the blood vessel can over-proliferate in a way that limits blood flow. Nitric oxide (NO) is an important molecule that helps maintain the contractility and health of vascular smooth muscle cells, and multiple...

Inhaling nitric oxide gas does not reduce pain crises or shorten hospital stays in people living with sickle cell disease, according to the results of a new study sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health. "Nitric Oxide for Inhalation in the Acute Treatment of Sickle Cell Pain Crisis," will be published in the March 2 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Sickle cell disease is an inherited disorder affecting...
