Let the NO flow: discovery provides key to improving blood circulation, healing

An angiogram, or X-ray image of blood vesselsScientists have uncovered a new biomedical technique that could increase blood flow to alleviate problems associated with cardiovascular disease, diabetes and many surgical procedures. They found that blocking the action of a blood-clot-associated protein turns up the effect of a biologically produced gas that can open blood vessels and increase blood flow.
