Montelukast

Montelukast is an orally active compound which binds with high affinity and selectivity to the CysLT1 receptor. Τhe CysLT type-1 (CysLT1) receptor is found in the human airway (including airway smooth muscle cells and airway macrophages) and on other pro-inflammatory cells (including eosinophils and certain myeloid stem cells). CysLTs have been correlated with the pathophysiology of asthma and allergic rhinitis.
