Inhaled glucocorticosteroids (corticosteroids) continue to be the standard treatment for nonexacerbated asthma because of their anti-inflammatory actions. These include effects on the airway vasculature, which participates in the inflammatory process. Corticosteroids are now known to have genomic as well as nongenomic effects that involve different mechanisms of action. The genomic vascular effects of inhaled corticosteroids include a decrease in airway wall hypervascularity (inhibition of… CONTINUE READING
