Leukotrienes play a major role in the underlying pathophysiology of asthma. Leukotriene-receptor antagonists and direct leukotriene-synthesis inhibitors may be important new agents in maintenance therapy for asthma. Their role may also extend to attenuating exercise-induced and allergen-induced bronchospasm.
