C.; Theron, A. J.; Tintinger, G. R.; Anderson, R. // Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (JAC);Nov2009, Vol. 64 Issue 5, p1008 

    Objectives: This study was designed to investigate the neutrophil-targeted anti-inflammatory potential of posaconazole (0.1–5 µM, equivalent to 0.7–3.9 mg/L) by measuring the effects of this agent on the release of leukotriene B4 (LTB4) and store-operated uptake of Ca2+...

    Neutrophils are physiologically associated with platelets in whole blood. Inflammatory reactions can be modulated by the presence of platelets. To investigate the influence of platelets on neutrophil activity, we studied the 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) metabolic pathway in normal human blood...

    MACROPHAGES harvested from the peritoneal cavities of rats release a neutrophil chemotactic factor (MNCF) in response to stimulation with Gram-negative bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS). MNCF has been shown to be active in rats treated with dexamethasone, a glucocorticoid that usually inhibits...

    Chronic damage and repair of the bronchial epithelium are features of asthma. We have previously reported that ex vivo stimulation of normal bronchial epithelial cells with epidermal growth factor (EGF), a key factor of epithelial repair, enhances the mechanisms of neutrophil accumulation,...

    Introduction and Rationale: Previous studies have shown that delayed neutrophil apoptosis is associated with chronic airway diseases. Leptin is an adipocyte-derived hormone that acts as a regulator of energy homeostasis and food intake. Emerging evidence suggests that leptin can regulate immune...

    Background: Fibroblasts are implicated in sub-epithelial fibrosis in remodeled asthmatic airways and contribute to airway inflammation by releasing cytokines and other mediators. Fibroblast activity is influenced by members of the leukotriene family of bronchoconstrictor and inflammatory...

    The article presents information on mechanisms mediating the biologic activity of synthetic proline, glycine, and hydroxyproline polypeptides in human neutrophils. The inflammatory response is characterized by an accumulation of neutrophils at sites of tissue injury and infection. Neutrophils...

    Summary In airways, mast cells lie adjacent to nerves, blood vessels and lymphatics, which highlights their pivotal importance in regulating allergic inflammatory processes. In asthma, mast cells are predominantly activated by IgE receptor cross linking. In response to activation, preformed...

    Neutrophils isolated from human peripheral blood added to a monolayer of human endothelial cells (ECV-304 cell line) stimulated with LPS (100 ng ml−1) resulted in: (a) neutrophil activation, measured by spreading and release of leukotriene B4 (LTB4); (b) neutrophil degranulation, measured...
