Abstract

In the recent years, studies higher incidence of cardiovascular diseases in patients with major depression (MD). A role of plasma nitric oxide (NO) levels in these diseases has been suggested. Hence, aim of the current study was to determine plasma NO, QT, corrected QT (QTc) and systolic and diastolic blood pressures (SBPDBP) in healthy women (HW) and in women with MD and to interrelate these values with plasma NO levels.
