BACKGROUND Epithelial cells and fibroblasts play an important role in allergic inflammation. Modulation of surface expression of adhesion molecules on epithelial cells by antiallergic drugs has been shown by both in vivo and in vitro studies. OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect exerted by terfenadine and fexofenadine on adhesion… CONTINUE READING
