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

Abstract

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)
