Abstract

Treatment of asthma with corticosteroids results in downregulation of eosinophilic airway inflammation. We evaluated in vitro the activity of an "inhaled" corticosteroid, mometasone furoate (MF), and of a "systemic" corticosteroid, dexamethasone (DEX), on eosinophil functions, i.e. adhesion molecule expression and cell chemotaxis. Partially purified blood eosinophils were obtained from 18 asthmatic subjects sensitized to house dust mites. The expression of the macrophage antigen (Mac)-1 (CD11b/CD18) was measured by specific monoclonal antibody (mAb) staining and flow cytometry analysis at baseline or after stimulation with N-formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (fMLP) or with recombinant human (rh) granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) plus a mAb anti-human (ah) IgE low affinity receptor [FcεRII or CD23]. Cell chemotaxis toward the complement fragment 5a (C5a) or rh interleukin (IL)-5 was evaluated in Boyden microchambers by light microscopy. Eosinophils showed a significant increase in Mac-1 expression after activation with fMLP or with rh GM-CSF plus ah CD23 mAbs (p
