The proton pump inhibitor lansoprazole inhibits rhinovirus infection in cultured human tracheal epithelial cells.


To examine the effects of lansoprazole, a proton pump inhibitor, on rhinovirus infection in airways, human tracheal epithelial cells were infected with a major subgroup of rhinoviruses, type 14 rhinovirus. Rhinovirus increased the mRNA expression of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) in the cells, the major rhinovirus receptor, and the content of… (More)
