In the December issue of Medical Hypotheses, an article proposed
a paradigm shift for NO (Nitric Oxide) and for autoimmune diseases,
Alzheimer’s disease being taken as a model. In this article, the
author demonstrated that NO is involved in the fight against oxygen
bubbles. NO is a gaseous radical resulting from the conversion of
arginine by NO-synthase.
