Therapeutic agents which may be able to enhance the antioxidant screen of the epithelial surface of the lung have the potential to influence the progression of lung inflammation. This study evaluates the efficacy of a variety of antiasthma drugs to reduce oxidant-mediated cytotoxicity and to inhibit superoxide anion generated by human polymorphonuclear(More)
In order to develop an efficient antioxidant therapeutic regime for inflammatory disease in the lung N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and reduced glutathione (GSH) were tested to inhibit O2 and H2O2 in vitro and ex vivo. NAC and GSH inhibited both at > or equal to 10(-4)M significantly H2O2 (5 x 10(-8)) mol/ml; p < 0.05). In contrast, in an assay consisting of(More)
