    Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragÖversiktsartikelVetenskapligPeer review

    Sammanfattning

    The human uterine cervix can produce nitric oxide (NO), a free radical with an ultra-short half-life. The release of NO changes during pregnancy and is increased in early nonviable pregnancies compared to normal uncomplicated pregnancies. This review concentrates on the role of NO release in cervical ripening in pregnant women. Also some suggestions on future aspects are discussed.
