    The article discusses the effect of β2 receptor to the health condition of asthmatic patients. It indicates when β2 agonist drugs are used during monotherapy, it triggers bronchial hyper-responsiveness (BHR) and results to an increase in the allergen-induced early and late asthmatic...

    Background: In guinea pigs, we have previously demonstrated that the contribution of Rho-kinase to airway responsiveness in vivo and ex vivo is enhanced after active sensitization with ovalbumin (OA). Using conscious, unrestrained OA-sensitized guina pigs, we now investigated the role of...

    Eosinophils have been shown to play a role in allergen-induced airway responses. The aim in this study was to examine the effects of TAK-661, a newly developed product as a specific inhibitory agent of eosinophil chemotaxis, on antigen-induced asthmatic responses in allergic sheep model. Seven...

    Background: Phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4) inhibitors increase intracellular cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP), leading to regulation of inflammatory cell functions. Roflumilast is a potent and targeted PDE4 inhibitor. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of roflumilast on...
