Background: Cysteinyl-leukotrienes are lipid derived mediators involved in asthma. They are able to stimulate eosinophil chemotaxis in vitro. Induced sputum from asthmatics has been shown to contain eosinophil chemotactic activity. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the contribution of cysteinyl-leukotrienes to sputum eosinophil chemotactic activity in asthmatics and to seek whether there might be differences between asthmatics free of inhaled corticosteroids vs those regularly receiving this treatment. Methods: Twenty-two patients (11 corticosteroid free, mean FEV1 99% predicted, 11 corticosteroid-treated, mean FEV1 77% predicted) recruited from our asthma clinic underwent a sputum induction. Sputum was processed according to standard procedure. Eosinophil chemotactic activity contained in the fluid phase was assessed using Boyden microchamber model and expressed as chemotaxis index (CI). Cysteinyl-leukotrienes were measured in sputum supernatant by ELISA and their role in sputum eosionophil chemotactic activity was evaluated by using montelukast, a selective antagonist of a cys-LT1 receptor. Results: Cysteinyl-leukotrienes were well detectable in sputum supernatants from both steroid-naive (247 +/- 42 pg/ml) and steroid-treated (228 +/- 26 pg/ml) asthmatics. Sputum eosinophil chemotactic activity was indiscriminately present in both corticosteroid-naive (CI: 2.61 +/- 0.22) and corticosteroid-treated (2.98 +/- 0.35) asthmatics. Montelukast (100 mu M) significantly inhibited the eosinophil chemotactic activity in both groups achieving a mean inhibition of 54.2 +/- 9.2% (P < 0.001) and 64.7 +/- 7.8% (P < 0.001) in steroid-naive and steroid-treated asthmatics respectively. Conclusion: Cysteinyl-leukotrienes actively participate in sputum eosinophil chemotactic activity found in asthmatics irrespective of whether they are or not under treatment with inhaled corticoids.

The respiratory tract of the horse can be the seat of several chronic inflammatory diseases whose principal ones are the recurrent airway obstruction, the inflammatory airway disease, the summer pasture-associated obstructive pulmonary disease and the follicular pharyngitis. These diseases can have an important impact on horses’ health and on their sports performances. A good knowledge of their aetiologies and their physiopathological mechanisms would allow a better control of these affections. However, even if many studies were made on this subject, there are currently very few certainties as for the inflammatory mechanisms governing these diseases. This article aims to make an inventory of knowledge and deficiencies concerning these four chronic inflammatory diseases [less ▲]

Intracellular invasion of Staphyloccocus aureus in nonphagocytic cells Staphylococcus aureus often causes chronic diseases. It is now believed that recurrence of these infections could be related to the ability of S. aureus to invade and persist within nonphagocytic cells. Adherence to eucaryotic cells is crucial for S. aureus to invade and persist within invasion and depends on interactions between bacterial fibronectin-binding proteins, fibronectin and the host cell fibronectin receptor, integrin alpha(5)beta(1). It is currently established that fibronectin acts as a bridging molecule. Penetration of S. aureus in host cells requires also activation of protein tyrosine kinases that mediate signal transduction and actin polymerization leading to cytoskeletal rearrangements. After internalization, S. aureus either remains in membrane-bound vacuoles or appears free in the cytoplasm. After bacterial proliferation, S. aureus induces host cell apoptosis or persist inside cells as small colony variants, which represent a less virulent subpopulation of S. aureus that grows slower. Although numerous in vitro and in vivo studies have demonstrated the ability of S. aureus to invade nonphagocytic cells, additional experiments have to be realized to understand the relevance of intracellular localization in vivo.

The bovine mastitis : from initiation to resolution The cure of a cow suffering from a bacterial mastitis relies on the balance between the eradication of the pathogen and the resolution of the inflammatory response, two processes that are essential to come back to a normal milk composition with low somatic cell count. The persistence of the inflammatory response, which main consequence is a reduction in milk yield, is a feature of chronic mastitis. This frequent disease depends on inappropriate host-pathogen interactions and is not yet well understood. This review resumes the main defence mechanisms of the bovine mammary gland, emphasizing the predominant roles played by the neutrophil, and brings some precisions on lipoxin implications in the resolution of inflammation. Reasons that may explain the persistence of the inflammatory reaction, a phenomenon found in the Staphylococcus aureus chronic mastitis, are also discussed. [less ▲]

Glucocorticoid (GC) therapy is recognized to be effective for the treatment of recurrent airway obstruction (RAO) in horses. Anti-inflammatory properties of GC are thought to be mediated by suppression of inflammatory gene expression via inhibition of transcription factors such as nuclear factor-kB (NF-kB) and activator protein-1 (AP-1). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of low-dose inhaled beclomethasone dipropionate and injectable dexamethasone 21- isonicotinate on clinical signs, pulmonary function, airway cytology, and activity of NF-kB and AP-1 in bronchial cells of RAO-affected horses. Seven horses with RAO were exposed to moldy hay until they developed airway obstruction on 3 separate occasions. In a crossover design, they were then treated with a placebo (injection on day 1), inhaled beclomethasone (500 mg q12h for 10 days), or dexamethasone (0.06 mg/kg, IM on day 1) and monitored for 10 days. Pulmonary function, bronchoalveolar lavage fluid cytology, and NF-kB and AP-1 activity in bronchial brushing cells were measured before (day 1) and after treatment (day 10). Treatment with beclomethasone resulted in significantly improved pulmonary function of RAOaffected horses compared with placebo and dexamethasone treatments. However, none of the treatments had an effect on bronchoalveolar lavage fluid cytology or NF-kB and AP-1 activity. These findings reveal that, in a model of severe RAO, the benefits of low-dose inhaled beclomethasone on pulmonary function are not accompanied by a decrease in airway inflammatory cells or a suppression of transcription factors NF-kB and AP-1 DNA-binding activity.

Horses with recurrent airway obstruction (RAO) present many similarities with human asthmatics including airway inflammation, hyperresponsiveness, reversible obstruction, and increased NF-kappaB expression. Studies in experimental asthma models have shown that transcriptions factors such as activator protein-1 (AP-1), GATA-3, cyclic AMP response element binding protein (CREB) and CAAT/enhancer binding protein (C/EBP) may also play an important role in airway inflammation. The purpose of this study was to measure DNA binding activity of these transcription factors in the airways of horses with RAO and to compare it to pulmonary function and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) cytology. Seven horses with RAO and six control animals were studied during a moldy hay challenge and after 2 months at pasture. Pulmonary function, BALF cytology and transcription factors' activities in bronchial brushings were measured during hay and pasture exposures. During moldy hay challenge, RAO-affected horses developed severe airway obstruction and inflammation and a significantly higher airway AP-1 binding activity than in controls. After 2 months on pasture, pulmonary function and airway AP-1 binding activity were not different between RAO and control horses. The DNA binding activity of CREB in airways of RAO-affected horses increased significantly after 2 months at pasture and became higher than in controls. A significant positive correlation was detected between AP-1 binding activity and indicators of airway obstruction and inflammation. Airway GATA-3, CEBP and CREB binding activities were negatively correlated with indices of airway obstruction. However, contrarily to CREB binding activity, GATA-3 and CEBP binding activities were not different between RAO and control horses and were unaffected by changes in environment. These data support the view that AP-1 and CREB play a role in modulating airway inflammation in horses with RAO [less ▲]
