Inhibition of inflammatory responses by ambroxol, a mucolytic agent, in a murine model of acute lung injury induced by lipopolysaccharide. The levels of protein carbonyls as a marker of oxidative stress were also significantly reduced.

Immunomodulatory Effects of Ambroxol on Airway Hyperresponsiveness and Inflammation

However, precise mechanisms and effects on mucus production and secretion in the pathogenesis of asthma are unclear. Slides were stained with modified Wright-Giemsa and white blood cells were differentiated by standard hematological procedures in a blinded fashion.

Therefore, understanding the potential of the drug in the treatment of asthma is a valid concern.

When given after challenge, AHR was suppressed but without effects on eosinophil numbers. Relationship of epidermal growth factor receptors to goblet cell production in human bronchi. The socioeconomic burden in the treatment of asthma has been of worldwide concern with increasing prevalence of the disease 12.


Among these factors, Th2 cells and related cytokines, Ambroxoll, IL-5, and IL are thought to play a central role in the pathogenesis of the disease J Allergy Clin Immunol.

The p values for significance were set to 0. Ambroxol is used in COPD and asthma to increase mucociliary clearance and regulate surfactant levels, perhaps through anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities.

Ambroxol inhibits neutrophil respiratory burst activated by alpha chain integrin adhesion. Is the prevalence of asthma declining?

Ambroxol has been widely used since the late s in various respiratory diseases with the goal of improving mucus clearance, facilitating expectoration, easing of productive cough, and providing local anesthetic effects 13 Alveolar macrophages were collected from OVA sensitized mice without challenge. The Tukey-Kramer test was used for comparisons between multiple groups.

After 24 hrs, supernatants were collected and stored for cytokine and protein carbonyl measurements as described jurnall.

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

The assumption was that uurnal anti-oxidant effects of ambroxol were transient and decreased levels of protein carbonyls in BAL fluid were not observed 2 days after cessation of ambroxol treatment. Effects of guaifenesin, N-acetylcysteine, and ambroxol on MUC5AC and mucociliary transport in primary differentiated human tracheal-bronchial cells.

Pharmacological and clinical update. In contrast to ambroxol treatment begun prior to OVA challenge, histological analysis revealed that ambroxol treatment initiated following OVA challenge did not alter inflammatory cell infiltration or goblet cell metaplasia in the airways of OVA-sensitized and challenged mice Fig.

Immunomodulatory Effects of Ambroxol on Airway Hyperresponsiveness and Inflammation

Ambroxol was administered either before the first OVA challenge or was begun after the last allergen challenge. Mice were ambroxoll, tracheostomized, mechanically ventilated, and lung function was assessed as described previously Ambrlxol this study, ambroxol was administrated to mice in a model of allergen-induced AHR and airway inflammation. These signaling molecules have been studied as potential targets of pharmacotherapy to inhibit airway mucus production in asthma 8.

To determine the effects of ambroxol In vitrolung mononuclear cells MNCs were isolated and cultured with OVA and ambroxol under various conditions.

Morcillo EJ, Cortijo J. Journal List Immune Netw v.

Expert Opin Drug Metab Toxicol. Ambroxol or saline were administrated following OVA challenge.

When ambroxol treatment was initiated following OVA challenge of sensitized mice, the development of AHR was significantly decreased compared to the control group Fig.
