Glucocorticoids are potent anti-inflammatory agents capable of influencing cytokine release in a number of cell types. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether glucocorticoids, frequently used in the treatment of asthma, interfere with cytokine secretion by lung epithelial cells and alveolar macrophages in vitro. Inhalation of swine dust induces airway inflammation with influx of inflammatory cells and release of proinflammatory cytokines in the lungs. Therefore, human lung… CONTINUE READING
