1. Infection of human bronchial epithelial cells with rhinovirus has minimal effect on the electrophysiological properties and ion transport processes of these epithelia.
2. The Scutellariae radix extract and its major flavonoids could not suppress rhinovirus replication but could promote the secretion of at least two pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-6 and IL-8)in human bronchial epithelia.
