... These long-term stores of sulfide may be compartmentalized, with most acid labile sulfide being stored in the mitochondria [39]. Prior human studies have reported total sulfide levels in the blood of patients with different medical conditions [40,41], but the measurement techniques may have aggregated all sulfide pools together. We previously reported elevated plasma free sulfide levels in patients with vascular disease [20]. ...
... Especially, H 2 S has been known to be associated to the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases including hypertension [17], atherosclerosis [18], and myocardial injury [19], and the severity of these diseases is negatively related to plasma H 2 S levels [20,21]. Besides, the mean serum H 2 S level in preeclampsia patients was significantly lower than controls [22]. And Renieris et al. suggested that H 2 S could be a potential marker for severity and final outcome of pneumonia by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus [23]. ...
