Cortisol protection of the granulocyte response to isoproterenol during an in vitro influenza virus incubation.


Isolated human polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) release beta glucuronidase (BG) lysosomal enzyme during incubation with complement-activated zymosan particles. In asthma, isoproterenol (ISO) and histamine (HIS) inhibition of PMN lysosomal enzyme release is impaired while the prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) response is normal. During a respiratory infection… (More)
