L-NMMA Dose-response Study in Healthy Subjects
L-NMMA's Effect on Renal and Cardiovascular Variables in Healthy Subjects. A Randomized, Placebo-controlled Crossover Study.
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.
