1. We have developed a novel model of allergen-induced eosinophil into mouse air-pouches following sensitization and challenge with ovalbumin (Ova). This model was used to investigate the mechanism(s) underlying the anti-inflammatory action of the glucocorticoid hormone dexamethasone (Dex). 2. Injection of 10 micrograms Ova into 6-day-old dorsal air-pouches of mice sensitized to the same antigen provoked an intense cell accumulation as early as 6 h post-challenge (0.08 +/- 0.03 and 4.0 +/- 1.0… CONTINUE READING
