Apocynin is an inhibitor of NADPH oxidase present in inflammatory cells such as eosinophils and neutrophils. We investigated the effect of inhaled apocynin on ozone-induced bronchial hyperresponsiveness in vivo. Seven mild atopic asthmatics participated in a placebo-controlled, cross-over study with two exposures to O(3) at 2-week intervals. Apocynin (3 ml(More)

Our aim was to study the role of neutrophils, and neutrophil-derived serine proteinases in an acute model in patients with asthma. Exposure to ozone induces an acute neutrophilic inflammatory(More)
