Figure 6

LTC4 secretion by macrophages was suppressed by theophylline and cAMP signaling regulators in a dose-dependent pattern. The cultured medium of macrophages treated with tested drugs was collected to perform ELISA. (A) LTC4 protein secretion was reduced by theophylline stimulation. (B) Etazolate, rolipram, forskolin, and db-cAMP (dibutyryl-cAMP) also suppressed LTC4 protein secretion. Arrow indicates the concentration of theophylline treatment corresponding to the clinical plasma levels (10 mg/L).
