Abstract

Nitric oxide is involved in a countless number of physiological processes and is known to have cytoprotective as well as cytotoxic effects. Increased knowledge about the multifaceted role of nitric oxide in a variety of disease states has led to the design of multiple treatment strategies involving the nitric oxide system. The current review focuses on recent research advances in the fields of obstetrics, bone disease and erectile dysfunction that have led to current or potential future therapies involving nitric oxide.
