"L-arginine and free radical scavengers increase cerebral blood flow and brain tissue nitric oxide concentrations after controlled cortical impact injury in rats"
--> These studies support the theory that L-arginine administration improves post-traumatic cerebral blood flow by increasing NO production
PS. and some info in livestron.com "L-Arginine Effects on the Brain"
NO has a role in several features of the disease, including disruption of the blood—brain barrier, oligodendrocyte injury and demyelination, axonal degeneration, and that it contributes to the loss of function by impairment of axonal conduction
However, despite these considerations, the net effect of NO production in MS is not necessarily deleterious because it also has several beneficial immunomodulatory effects. These dual effects may help to explain why iNOS inhibition has not provided reliable and encouraging results in animal models of MS, but alternative approaches based on the inhibition of superoxide production, partial sodium-channel blockade, or the replacement of lost immunomodulatory function, may prove beneficial.
