Effect of LPS (Stim) and LPS plus dexamethasone (LPS/Dex) on the ratio of LTB4 to LXA4 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.
