Since PMNL adhesion to EC represents a prerequisite for cys-LT formation, we asked whether in situ biosynthesis of cys-LT may playa role . in the regulation of adhesive phenomena in cerebral microcirculation in vivo. We used a newly developed model of intravital microscopy in mice, allowing analysis of the interactions (rolling and firm. adhesion) between PMNL and endothelium in brain microvasculature. Using this in vivo model and the highly specific leukotriene biosynthesis inhibitor MK886, we demonstrate that cys-LT playa role in the regulation of fum adhesion of PMNL to the endothelium in inflamed cerebral venules.

LTC4 PRODUCTION BY EOSINOPHILSIN ASTHMA Table I . 02 I 13 Table 2. 01 From this cohort, ten WT, four MT, and six HT patients constituted the study population. 9 by ANOYA). Although Ca-ion robustly stimulated LTC4 production, no differences were detected among the WT [109±17 (mean±SD) ng/ml] , MT (109±23 ng/ml) and HT (1l0±21 ng/ml) (p=1, by ANOYA on ranks). Zileuton effectively suppressed >99% of LTC4 production in all groups. There was no significant difference in the amount of LT production after Zileuton treatment.
