Briefly, lungs were taken from mice following exposure to OVA.

Ambroxol in the 21st century: pharmacological and clinical update.

Abstract Ambroxol is used in COPD and asthma to increase mucociliary clearance and regulate surfactant levels, perhaps through anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Support Center Support Center. Therefore, reduction of Th2 cytokines in the airways by ambroxol may be a cause of the reductions in AHR and airway inflammation induced by allergen.

Ambroxol in the 21st century: Oxidative stress causes damage in the airways and exaggerates airway diseases including asthma or in animal models of airway allergic inflammation 35 Alveolar macrophages were collected from OVA sensitized mice without challenge.

Oxidative stress can be induced in any organ of the body when the balance of anti-oxidant versus reactive oxygen species is altered Open in a separate window. The Tukey-Kramer test was used for comparisons between multiple groups.

A Changes in lung resistance RL. Disruption of Nrf2 enhances susceptibility to severe airway inflammation and asthma in mice. Airway responsiveness was assessed as changes in airway function after challenge with aerosolized methacholine MCh Sigma.


In particular, IL was shown to be a potent inducer of airway hyperresponsiveness AHReosinophilic airway inflammation, and goblet cell metaplasia 5. Local treatment with IL is an effective inhibitor of airway hyperresponsiveness and lung eosinophilia after airway challenge in sensitized mice.

The predictive value of asthma medications to identify individuals with asthma–a study in German general practices.

Ambroxol in the 21st century: pharmacological and clinical update.

Complement activation is critical to airway hyperresponsiveness after acute ozone exposure. When ambroxol treatment was initiated following OVA challenge of sensitized mice, the development of AHR was significantly decreased compared to the control group Fig.

Immunomodulatory Effects of Ambroxol on Airway Hyperresponsiveness and Inflammation

Therefore, understanding the potential of the drug in the treatment of asthma nurnal a valid concern. Find articles by Christian Taube. Measurement of protein carbonyls To investigate the role of ambroxol as an anti-oxidant agent, we determined protein carbonyl levels in BAL fluid as an index of oxidative stress in the lung Jurnzl given after challenge, AHR was suppressed but without effects on eosinophil numbers.

Regulation of IL and IL production and function in macrophages and dendritic cells. Reassessing the Th2 cytokine basis of asthma.

Since measured values may not be normally distributed on account of the small sample sizes, nonparametric analysis, Mann-Whitney U test, was also used to confirm that the statistical differences remained significant. IL has been shown to be a major inducer of mucus production through goblet cell metaplasia in airway epithelial layers and to play a critical role in the development of AHR 8.


These findings may explain some of the results seen in this study; the antioxidant properties of ambroxol may be linked to the increased levels of IL in the mice with established airway inflammation but was protective against Th2 differentiation detected as decreased levels of IL-5 and IL J Obstet Gynaecol Res.

Systematic review of epidemiological studies. Cell preparation for In vitro cytokine production To determine the effects of ambroxol In vitrolung mononuclear cells MNCs were isolated and cultured with OVA and ambroxol juurnal various conditions.

When ambroxol treatment was initiated ambrocol to OVA challenge of sensitized mice, decreased levels of airway responsiveness, eosinophilia, and goblet cell metaplasia along the airways were observed, accompanied by decreases in the levels of the Th2-type cytokines, IL-5, and IL in BAL fluid.

In asthmatics, ambroxol was shown to improve AHR and lung function 14 Ambroxol has been in the clinic for many years, the drug is inexpensive and few adverse effects have been described.
