It was reported to accelerate apoptosis of neutrophils through a mechanism that is at least partially cAMP-dependent . This action of erythromycin has been confirmed in isolated human neutrophils and in guinea-pig eosinophils stimulated with IL-5 and extended also to roxithromycin [85, 86]. Azithromycin was also shown to stimulate apoptosis of neutrophils, without releasing proinflammatory IL-8 or inducing the oxidative burst, but in the presence of S. pneumoniae this effect was abolished , probably due to the fact that phagocytosis of the bacteria had already induced apoptosis .
In addition, these macrolides stimulated the generation of anti-inflammatory IL-10 in a cyclic AMP- and CREB-dependent manner. Cyclines Cyclines interfere with bacterial protein synthesis, and have been widely reported to inhibit various phagocyte functions, including cytokine release, at therapeutic concentrations . Initially investigated in periodontal disease , these drugs were found to exhibit anti-inflammatory and bone resorption-inhibiting effects independent of their antibacterial activity.
