Many of the therapeutic effects of systemic and inhaled corticosteroids can be explained by their ability to modulate immune responses. T lymphocytes in particular have been used to establish some of the key paradigms by which corticosteroids inhibit cell activation and gene expression, and there is now substantial evidence that inhaled corticosteroids potently suppress pulmonary immune responses driven by T-helper cells. Inhaled corticosteroids work in part by suppressing T-cell homing to the… CONTINUE READING
