Studying the Roles of Some Key Molecules in Acute Allergic Asthma

  • Ena Ray Banerjee


Patients are usually prescribed a racemic mixture of S and R albuterol. The aim of the study was to delineate functional efficacy of either or both of them in acute allergic asthma using a murine model. While both R and S albuterol reduce airway eosinophil trafficing and mucus hypersecretion in the mousemodel of asthma, S-albuterol increases allergen-induced airway edema and hyperresponsivness which limits the clinical efficacy of the S enantiomerin over-the-counter drugs for asthma.
