abstract

  • These data uncover beneficial effects of acute tetrahydrobiopterin addition on endothelial function in human vessels. Because endothelial dysfunction has been implicated in the development of graft failure, studies aimed at chronic delivery of tetrahydrobiopterin would be useful in determining the contribution of this cofactor toward saphenous vein atherosclerosis.
