The sharp rise in cysteinyl leukotrienes that occurs with NSAID ingestion in AIA has been shown to cause myocardial ischemia in patients with anatomically normal coronary arteries (18), presumably due to coronary vasospasm.
31] Various chemokines and a lipid mediator, cysteinyl leukotrienes ([CysLTs], the 5-lipoxygenase metabolites of arachidonic acid) are potent inflammatory mediators that are associated with I-R-induced tissue injury.
In children higher levels of cysteinyl leukotrienes have been found in those with SDB (32,33).
They have a rapid onset of action (within 1-3 hours), (48) are administered orally, treat asthma via a different pathway to other currently available medications (specific cysteinyl leukotriene receptor antagonists), and have been shown to be effective for aspirin-sensitive asthma.
The immediate response is the early in which mast cells and basophils undergo degranulation to release histamine, and cysteinyl leukotrienes.
A major achievement of our program has been the development of the cysteinyl leukotriene-1 (CystLT1) receptor antagonist Singulair[R] (Figure 1).
Leukotriene receptor antagonists block the bronchoconstrictor and proinflammatory activity of cysteinyl leukotrienes (metabolites of arachodonic acid produced by mast cells, basophils and eosinophils) within the asthmatic airway.
The mechanism of emesis also has been postulated to be related to the stimulation of mast cells and the subsequent release of cysteinyl leukotrienes and histamine (12).
Smoking amplifies airway inflammation already present in asthmatics by many mechanisms such as increasing numbers of inflammatory cells, altering cell subtypes, and, in vitro, promoting neurogenic inflammation, increasing oxidative stress, and elevating cysteinyl leukotrienes.
Montelukast sodium, the active ingredient in SINGULAIR(*), is a selective and orally active leukotriene receptor antagonist that inhibits the cysteinyl leukotriene CysLT1 receptor.
