"This is a remarkable day; the medical editors showed leadership in demonstrating that we medical scientists must put the interests of society first. There are a lot of details to work out -- but they have given substantial impetus to the open science movement and to the efforts to have medical research be transparent. If this proposal is accepted, then the medical science world will be forever transformed for the better."]]>

iNO therapy is mainly used in intensive care units (ICU) to aid in the therapeutic care of premature babies and patients under severe respiratory distress. Using iNO therapy allows the blood supply to pick up oxygen from the lungs more readily by dilating the pulmonary arteries, making it the ideal method of treatment for pulmonary hypertension and other conditions that can lead to severe breathing difficulties.]]>
