In this presentation, Nathan S. Bryan will provide an overview of the atmospheric and human nitrogen cycles and nitric oxide production pathways in humans. He will review evidence based nitric oxide research specific to vascular function and structure. In addition to nitric oxide production, he will review the importance of nitrate and how much is recommended daily for health benefits. Dr. Bryan will also discuss nitric oxide therapeutic interventional outcome data and how to control and regulate nitric oxide production.

Outcome Objectives:
Upon completion of this CME/CE activity the healthcare provider will be able to:

  1. Recognize nitric oxide production pathways in humans.
  2. Demonstrate evidence on how NO affects vascular structure and function.
  3. Communicate evidence based nutritional strategies to restore and replete NO production in humans to restore vascular structure and function.

Dr. Bryan earned his undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from the University of Texas at Austin and his doctoral degree from Louisiana State University School of Medicine in Shreveport where he was the recipient of the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Research. He pursued his post-doctoral training as a Kirschstein Fellow at Boston University School of Medicine in the Whitaker Cardiovascular Institute. After a two year post-doctoral fellowship, in 2006 Dr. Bryan was recruited to join faculty at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston by Ferid Murad, M.D., Ph.D., 1998 Nobel Laureate in Medicine or Physiology. During his tenure as faculty and independent investigator at UT, his research focused on drug discovery through screening natural product libraries for active compounds. His nine years at UT led to several discoveries which have resulted in over a dozen issued US and international patents and many more pending worldwide.

Specifically, Dr. Bryan was the first to describe nitrite and nitrate as indispensable nutrients required for optimal cardiovascular health. He was the first to demonstrate and discover an endocrine function of nitric oxide via the formation of S-nitrosoglutathione and inorganic nitrite. Through the drug discovery program in natural product chemistry, Dr. Bryan discovered unique compositions of matter than can be used to safely and effectively generate and restore nitric oxide in humans. This technology is now validated in six published clinical trials.
