The Nitric oxide’s new welcome role: Health Care

Date: 2016-09-12

Since the discovery the role of nitric oxide as a cardiovascular signaling molecule, and as a consequence of its importance in neuroscience, physiology, and immunology, it also plays a key role in controlling the circulation of blood and regulating activities of the brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, stomach and other organs.

Nitric oxide (NO) can generate free radicals as well as scavenge them. It also functions as a signalling molecule and has an important role in the pathogenesis of several diseases. A major focus is delivery of NO by various technologies. Another approach is modulation of nitric oxide synthase (NOS), which converts L-arginine to NO. NOS can be stimulated as well as inhibited by pharmacological and gene therapy approaches.

Important therapeutic areas for NO-based therapies are inflammatory disorders, cardiovascular diseases, erectile dysfunction, inflammation, pain and neuro-protection. The first therapeutic use of NO was by inhalation for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). NO-donors, NO-mimics and NOS modulators are described and compared along with developmental status. NO-related mechanisms of action in existing drugs are identified.

Nowadays, Nitric oxide (NO) is not only used in Medical, but also become popular in health care production as a supplement which affects the release of hormones and adrenaline. It’s also said to speed growth and recovery time as well as increase blood flow, thus delivering more nutrients to muscles, helping them grow. Many athletes take NO supplements because they believe they make them workout harder and for longer.

Nitric oxide (NO) application market share in 2015:
