Effect of eotaxin and platelet-activating factor on airway inflammation and hyperresponsiveness in guinea pigs in vivo.

Abstract

Although eotaxin causes selective infiltration of eosinophils into the lung, its role in airway hyperresponsiveness remains unclear. We studied the effects of local administration of eotaxin on airway inflammation and hyperresponsiveness in guinea pigs in vivo. Airway responsiveness to inhaled histamine and differential cell counts in bronchoalveolar lavage… (More)
