Grain dust induces IL-8 production from bronchial epithelial cells: the effect of dexamethasone on IL-8 production.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recent publications have suggested an active participation of neutrophils to induce bronchoconstriction after inhalation of grain dust (GD). OBJECTIVE To further understand the role of neutrophils in the pathogenesis of GD-induced asthma, this investigation was designed to determine whether human bronchial epithelial cells could produce IL-8… (More)
