|Abstract:||The neuropeptide substance P (SP), a main mediator of neurogenic inflammation, has been shown to have direct and modulatory effects on functional responses of polymorphonuclear leucocytes (PMNL). In this study, we further investigated the effects exerted by SP on human PMNL functions. Pretreatment of PMNL with SP resulted in an increase of superoxide anion (O2-) production in response to formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (FMLP), concanavalin A (Con A) and opsonized zymosan (STZ). In contrast, the O2- production induced by tumour necrosis factor (TNF) was strongly inhibited by pretreatment with SP. Both enhancement and inhibition of O2- response were exerted by SP in a dose-dependent manner and at concentrations which did not directly stimulate O2- production. These effects were rapid in onset, and occurred after 5 min of preincubation of cells with the neuropeptide. At concentrations that modulated O2- production by PMNL, SP also directly stimulated release of the chemotactic cytokine interleukin-8 (I|
