Figure 5

Effect of LPS (Stim) and LPS plus dexamethasone (LPS/Dex) on the ratio of LTB 4 to LXA 4 from alveolar macrophages. In both asthmatic groups, the ratio of released LTB4 to released LXA4 is increased after LPS and this is not reversed in the presence of dexamethasone. *p < 0.05 compared to baseline (base) within each group; +p < 0.01 compared to LPS/Dex of normal subjects. Data shown as shown as mean ± SEM.
