Asymmetrical dimethylarginine (ADAM) in systemic sclerosis-related pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).

In patients with SScPAH, increased ADMA serum levels and their negative association with exercise capacity suggests that the nitric oxide pathway is involved in the development of pulmonary vascular disease. T. Dimitroulas. Rheumatology 2008 47(11):1682-1685. (Also see: Pulmonary Hypertension)
