Therefore, we have not been able to conduct our study in well balanced populations with equal age, race and gender distribution. This may have had a major impact on the LT production especially at baseline. Maybe even more importantly is the fact that all the patients involved in this study were taking varying doses of inhaled corticosteroids. Although it is well known that corticosteroids do not effect the in-vivo LT production, the fact that the symptoms of the patients are controlled by various doses of corticosteroids suggests that the patients had varying degrees of disease severity and thus were at different LTC4 PRODUCTION BY EOSINOPHILS INASTHMA 14 states of disease activation at the time of sampling.

The absolute values for the potencies of cysLTs were markedly similar between the recombinant molecular assays when compared with the classical pharmacological studies for both types of CysLT receptors. Interestingly, the hCysLT, receptor exhibited a greater ligand variability (LTD4>LTC4) when compared with the CysLT2 receptor data (LTD4=LTC4) . These results suggest that there may be differences in conformational aspects at the ligandmembrane level and/or a more effective coupling to the second messengers at the CysLT 2 receptor when compared with the CysLT, receptor.
