There was no significant difference in the amount of LT production after Zileuton treatment. Discussion Our findings suggest that there are no significant differences in LTC 4 production by eosinophils from asthmatic subjects with alternative genotypes at baseline or after near maximal stimulation with Ca ionophore. Although Zileuton inhibited >99% of leukotriene production, it failed to bring about a difference among different genotypes. There may be several reasons why we have not been able to show any significant difference in the leukotriene production by eosinophils from asthmatic individuals with different genotypes at ALOX-5 core promoter.

Showed that treatment of polymorphonuclear leukocytes with PGE2, mimicking an inflammatory setting, resulted in the expression of l5-LO accompanied by a similar shift from the production of pro-inflammatory LTB4 to the synthesis of the anti-inflammatory 5-LO/15LO metabolite lipoxin ~ [11], and suggested that the expression of l5-LO may signal the end of the acute phase of the inflammatory response. , may provide the molecular basis for events playing an important role in the resolution of the acute inflammatory response.
