Background: Increased amounts of cysteinyl leukotrienes have been demonstrated in urine samples from asthmatic patients, particularly during exacerbations of asthma. Although the use of leukotriene receptor antagonists has been recommended in the treatment of chronic asthma. no guidelines are available regarding their use in the treatment of acute asthma.
