Inhaled corticosteroids suppress airway inflammation and components of airway remodelling in bronchial asthma. In the tracheobronchial (airway) vasculature, these include the inhibition of inflammatory hyperperfusion, microvascular hyperpermeability, mucosal oedema formation, and the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis). Corticosteroids are now known to exert their effects on the airway vasculature through genomic and nongenomic mechanisms. Genomic actions involve the regulation of… CONTINUE READING
