It is debatable whether β2‐receptor agonists produce antiallergic effects in human airways. This question has been addressed in the present study by examination of both mast‐cell indices and the physiologic response to allergen challenge in human nasal airways. Twelve asymptomatic patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis were investigated outside the pollen season. Intranasal allergen provocation was carried out with diluent and three increasing doses of allergen. Topical terbutaline sulfate (1… Expand
Effects of topical formoterol alone and in combination with budesonide in a pollen season model of allergic rhinitis.
TLDR
The present dose of formoterol does not affect symptoms and inflammatory signs of allergic rhinitis and does not add to the efficacy of topical budesonide. Expand
Effects of formoterol on histamine induced plasma exudation in induced sputum from normal subjects
TLDR
This study shows for the first time an anti-exudative effect of a β2 agonist in healthy human bronchial airways and suggests that anAnti-exuding effect may contribute to the anti-asthmatic activity of formoterol. Expand
Long-acting β2 agonists in asthma and allergic rhinitis
TLDR
The intriguing united airway concept led to the hypothesis that common therapies may influence both and asthma and allergic rhinitis, Consequently, better designed studies with LABAs in allergic Rhinitis are now mandatory. Expand
Symptoms and aspects on eosinophil activity in allergic rhinitis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that repeated individualized allergen challenges can produce symptoms and signs that mimic seasonal disease and that production of the eosinophil chemokine CCL5 is particularly corticosteroid sensitive, suggesting that it may be a valid treatment target. Expand
Effects of terbutaline on NGF formation in allergic inflammation of the rat
TLDR
The present results demonstrate anti‐allergic properties of terbutaline in rats that were accompanied by a marked reduction of antigen‐induced NGF increase in skin and BAL, respectively, compatible with the assumption that ter butaline primarily suppressed the immune response to antigen thereby attenuating the release of vasoactive mediators and the stimulation of NGF biosynthesis.

Scientific rationale for inhaled combination therapy with long-acting β2-agonists and corticosteroids
  • P. Barnes
  • Medicine
  • European Respiratory Journal
  • 2002
TLDR
LABA and ICS may optimize each others beneficial actions in the airways, but the low systemic effects of these drugs do not result in any increase in adverse effects. Expand
Effect of β agonists on inflammatory cells
TLDR
Although the major action of racemic beta(2 )-agonists on the airways is relaxation of airway smooth muscle, these drugs have several other effects mediated through beta( 2 )-adrenergic receptors expressed on other cell types that may contribute to the efficacy of beta(1)-agonists in relieving asthma symptoms.

Absence of proinflammatory cytokine gene expression in nasal biopsies from wood surface-coating industry workers.
TLDR
The symptoms of nasal, pharyngeal and ocular discomfort reported among workers in the wood surface-coating industry are non-specific and do not correlate with occupational exposure to UV coatings under the conditions of this investigation. Expand
Absence of Proinflammatory Cytokine Gene Expression in Nasal Biopsies from Wood Surface-coating Industry Workers
Symptoms of nasal, pharyngeal and ocular discomfort have been reported among workers in the wood surface-coating industry. Symptoms were reported more often by workers using ultravioletExpand
Epithelium, microcirculation, and eosinophils – new aspects of the allergic airway in vivo
TLDR
This review deals with one inflammatory cell, the eosinophil, and two airway end organs, the epithelium and the microvasculature, and deals with events in particular: epithelial shedding-restitution processes, niicrovascular-mucosal exudation of bulk plasma, and generation of free extracellular eOSinophilic granules in airway tissue.

Loratadine reduces allergen-induced mucosal output of alpha 2-macroglobulin and tryptase in allergic rhinitis.
TLDR
The inhibitory effects of loratadine on nasal lavage fluid levels of alpha 2-macroglobulin and tryptase suggest that histamine, through effects on microvascular H1-receptors, mediates allergen challenge-induced exudation of bulk plasma in acute allergic rhinitis. Expand
Inhibition of the immediate allergic reaction in the nose by the beta-2 adrenostimulant fenoterol.
TLDR
The aim of this study was to investigate the protective effect of the beta-2 adrenostimulant fenoterol on allergen-induced nasal symptoms and to relate the efficacy to dose and time. Expand
Tryptase levels in nasal-lavage fluid as an indicator of the immediate allergic response.
TLDR
Tryptase levels in nasal-lavage fluid appear promising as a useful indicator of allergic reactions and indicate that mast cell activation is the major factor in the immediate nasal-allergic response. Expand
Effects of topical use of beta-adrenoceptor stimulants on nasal mucosa. Rhinomanometric evaluations in experiments with terbutaline and KWD 2131. II. Nasal provocation tests with hay fever patients in asymptomatic period.
TLDR
The rhinomanometric measurements indicated an antianaphylactic effect of terbutaline and KWD 2131, but rhinoscopy and the patients' own opinion could not establish such an effect and the design of the trial made it possible to establish whether or not an increased or a decreased nasal obstruction due to repeated challenges occurred. Expand
Inhibition of anti‐IgE induced skin responsein normals by formoterol, a new β2‐adrenoceptor agonist, and terbutaline
TLDR
The data support the concept that terbutaline, given locally in a single dose shortly before challenge, inhibits the mast cell mediator release reaction with limited consequences for the following LCR, and formoterol exerted a substantial anti‐LCR action, probably by interfering with inflammatory mechanisms after the initial mast cellmediator release. Expand
Inhibition of anti‐IgE induced skin response in normals by formoterol, a new β2 adrenoceptor agonist, and terbutaline
TLDR
The results indicate a higher β2‐receptor activity for formoterol with respect to inhibition of IgE‐dependent mast cell mediator release in addition to an anti‐leak effect exerted by both drugs. Expand
Effects of topical use of beta-adrenoceptor stimulants of nasal mucosa. Rhinomanometric evaluations in experiments with terbutaline and KWD 2131.
TLDR
No obvious changes in nasal resistance were revealed and this makes the nasal muscosa a suitable organ for testing the capacity of beta-adrenoceptor stimulants to reduce the release of mediators from mast cells after allergen challenges. Expand
The effects of topical saline and isoproterenol on nasal airway resistance.
TLDR
The direct effects of isoproterenol on the nasal vasculature tend to outweigh those expected from inhibition of mediator release under the conditions of this study. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that antiexudative actions may contribute to the antiasthma effects of beta 2-agonists, xanthines, and cromoglycates. Expand
