This suggests that some of the adverse effects of homocysteine, which are related to arachidonic acid metabolism, may depend on the formation of thromboxane A2 , a potent vasoconstrictor and inducer of platelet aggregation. Total Hcy was also related to neopterin (a monocyte-derived inflammatory mediator) and endothelin-1, bothin patients with disturbed glucose metabolism and in controls, which again suggests an influence of Hcy on vascular function through interference with endothelial and leucocyte function {Gottsaker et al.

The effect of PML-induced hyperhomocysteinaemia on cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR), which has been reported to be NO-related in experimental studies, was measured by transcranial Doppler ultrasonography in healthy younger and older adults before and after treatment with the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, quinapril (10 mg/day for 1 week).
