Abstract:

Oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathogenesis of asthma. Recently several investigators have studied the effects of a variety of antioxidants on asthma. Antioxidants, including L-2- oxothiazolidine-4-carboxylic acid, reduce airway inflammation and hyper-responsiveness of asthma and may be novel therapeutic agents for asthma.
