The aim of this thesis is to determine the impact of cigarette smoking on endothelial dependent integration of the cardiovascular haemodynamic and barrier functions. Considering the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and cytoprotective properties of taurine, and the relation of consumption of this amino acid to coronary heart disease in world-wide epidemiological studies, this thesis also investigates potential beneficial effects of taurine consumption in asymptomatic smokers on endothehal health.
