Abstract

The inhibitory effect of olopatadine, a new antiallergic drug, on antigen-induced eosinophil infiltration and its mechanisms were examined using the local sensitized rat allergic rhinitis model and isolated IL-5-stimulated rat peritoneal eosinophils. Olopatadine dose-dependently inhibited antigen-induced eosinophil infiltration in the nasal mucosa. Olopatadine dose-dependently repressed the IL-5-induced expressions of CD11a/CD18 (LFA-1) and CD11b/CD18 (Mac-1) on rat peritoneal eosinophils. However, olopatadine had no effect on IL-5-induced CD49d/CD29 (VLA-4) expression. These results suggest that olopatadine may inhibit antigen-induced eosinophil infiltration through repression of LFA-1 and Mac-1 expression.
