Phosphodiesterase inhibitors were used as a tool to manipulate cellular nucleotide levels in vitro and in vivo. The lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced release of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) from mouse peritoneal macrophages was inhibited by prostaglandin E2 with an IC50 of...

The effects of the nonselective phosphodiesterase (PDE)-inhibitor 3-isobutyl-1-methylxanthine (IBMX) and the selective PDE inhibitors SKF 94120 (type III), rolipram (type IV), zardaverine (type III/IV), and zaprinast (type V) on inherent tone in human airways were investigated. Substantial relaxation was achieved...

The cyclic AMP phosphodiesterase (PDE) III/IV inhibitor, zardaverine, and the PDE IV-selective inhibitor, rolipram, both caused concentration-dependent inhibition of opsonized zymosan-stimulated superoxide anion generation by purified human peripheral blood eosinophils with approximate IC50 values of 30 and 40 microM, respectively....

Zardaverine is a newly developed selective phosphodiesterase III and IV inhibitor. This study investigates the bronchodilatory properties of zardaverine, administered by inhalation. Twelve patients with reversible bronchial obstruction (increase in forced expiratory volume in one second (change FEV1 % predicted)...
