BACKGROUND Mucosal inflammatory processes in late phase of allergic diseases involve cytokine production, cell adhesion molecule overexpression and release of inflammatory mediators with chemotactic activity, such as leukotriene B4 (LTB4). We had previously observed increased production of LTB4 by neutrophils in patients with allergic rhinitis and discussed(More)
The bronchial epithelium produces cytokines that could contribute to inflammatory events in airways. In this study we determined the basal and TNFalpha stimulated productions of GM-CSF and IL-8 by human bronchial epithelial cells (HBEC) collected from 12 control and six asthmatic patients. Spontaneous and TNFalpha-induced GM-CSF or IL-8 released levels(More)
