Effects of inflammatory cytokines on the permeability of human lung microvascular endothelial cell monolayers and differential eosinophil transmigration.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Rhinovirus (RV) infections can result in asthma exacerbations in both adults and children. Respiratory epithelium, the primary site of RV replication, responds to the viral infection by generating a variety of cytokines and chemokines capable of promoting airway inflammation and hence might increase asthma severity.
