Comments P.3367 left column bottom paragraph:"In the past few years, H2S has also been postulated to be a biologically gaseous mediator with potential roles in several physiological processes and disease states [primary sources 21-24]. Most results were based on the finding of high concentrations of H2S (10–300 μM) in healthy tissues and blood [primary sources 21-25]." Primary source [24] studied rats, the other primary source abstracts didn't specify which organism they studied.
