Leukotrienes (LTs) C4 and B4 are potent proinflammatory mediators with a wide variety of biologic activities, including smooth muscle contraction, mucus hypersecretion, and leukocyte activation, which may be of particular relevance to the pathology of asthma and other respiratory diseases. We measured the concentrations of LTC4 and LTB4 in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid from 16 atopic subjects with asthma (eight symptomatic and eight asymptomatic) and from 14 control subjects without asthma (six… CONTINUE READING
