In this study, we evaluated the effects of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection on nitric oxide (NO) production in human airway epithelial cells. In addition, we evaluated whether T-helper type 1 (Th1)- and Th2-type cytokines modulate the release of NO in response to RSV infection. To do this, we infected monolayers of A549 cells with RSV and… CONTINUE READING
