Leukotriene antagonist

What is Leukotriene antagonist?

Leukotriene antagonists are either leukotriene receptor antagonists or leukotriene synthesis inhibitors, which act by blocking 5-lipoxygenase activity. These modifiers have been shown to improve asthma symptoms, reduce asthma exacerbations and limit markers of inflammation such as eosinophil counts in the peripheral blood and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid.
