Putting The NO In A Nobel Prize: Nitric Oxide And Heart Disease Prevention

The Nobel Prize in Medicine this past week was awarded to Yoshinori Oshumi for work on autophagy or "self-eating" of cells. Notable was that this field of study initiated in the 1960s and it took 50 years to gain this recognition. Clinical translation of this research into potentially extending lifespans is unrealized at this time. Science can move slowly. Closer to my area of clinical interest was the Nobel Prize in Medicine awarded in 1998 to 3 researchers for describing the central role of nitric oxide (NO) as a signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system.
