BACKGROUND Dendritic cells (DCs), the antigen-presenting cells in the airway, play a critical role in asthma. Nevertheless, there is little information on the effects of antiasthmatic agents on DCs. OBJECTIVES The purpose of the present study was to determine the effects of representative antiasthmatic agents, including cysteinyl leukotriene (cysLT) 1 receptor antagonists, corticosteroid, and tacrolimus, on DCs in inducing allergy. METHODS Human peripheral blood monocyte-derived DCs (MoDCs… CONTINUE READING
