Inhalation of Budesonide/Formoterol Increases Diaphragm Muscle Contractility Full Text
Allergology International, 07/27/2012
Shindoh C et al. – Budesonide/formoterol (BUD/FORM) inhalation has an inotropic effect on diaphragm muscle, protects diaphragm muscle deterioration after endotoxin injection, and inhibits NO production. Increments in muscle contractility with BUD/FORM inhalation are induced through a synergistic effect of an anti–inflammatory agent and β2–agonist.
