Inhibition by roxithromycin of cytokine release from SM-exposed SAE cells. Various concentrations of roxithromycin were added to cells exposed to 100 μM SM. Cytokine release was measured by ELISA 24 h after exposure. Cytokine concentration is expressed as a percentage of the control (unexposed) cells. RXM, roxithromycin. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001 versus cells exposed to SM only.
