Event Details

Nitric oxide (NO), a gaseous free radical, is one of the ten smallest molecules found in nature. Although toxic, it is recognized to be a gasotransmitter that plays multiple roles in normal physiology. NO regulates vascular relaxation, controls inflammation, and suppresses expression of pro-inflammatory mediators in mast cells, macrophages, vascular smooth muscles, affects metabolism, insulin resistance, and has a role in type-2 diabetes.

In this webinar, over a 2-day period, we will hear updates from some of the experts in this interesting, still evolving, and at times controversial field.
