Modulatory effects of N-acetyl-L-cysteine on human eosinophil apoptosis.


Eosinophils are oxidant-sensitive cells considered relevant in allergic inflammation. The present study aimed to examine the effects of the antioxidant N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) on constitutive and cytokine-delayed apoptosis in human isolated eosinophils. Human eosinophils were purified from the blood of healthy donors by a magnetic separation system… (More)
