Eosinophils are important immune effector cells in a variety of allergic responses and inflammatory lung diseases. Bacterial products and inflammatory mediators have been implicated in inducing an influx of eosinophils into the respiratory tract subsequent to an acute inflammatory response. Therefore, to better understand the role of eosinophils in lung inflammation, we compared the ability of three known chemoattractants, formylmethionylleucylphenylalanine (FMLP), leukotriene B4 (LTB4), and… CONTINUE READING
