Williamson, Paula M; Kohlhagen, Johanna; Mangos, George; Whitworth, Judith; Kelly, John J


1. The aim of the present study was to examine the acute effects of cortisol infusion on plasma nitrate/nitrite (NO) activity and forearm vascular responsiveness to acetylcholine. 2. We performed two randomized, placebo-controlled, cross-over studies. Study A examined the effects of intravenous hydrocortisone (200 mg over a 3 h period) on blood pressure (BP) and plasma NO activity in six healthy male volunteers. Study B examined the effects of intra-arterial hydrocortisone on cholinergic...[Show more]
