Effects on plasma exudation and infiltration of leukocytes Leukocyte adhesion is an initial hallmark of the inflammatory process. The recruitment of these cells to a site of inflammation occurs through a sequence of events involving the specific arrest of leukocytes on the vascular endothelium and their transmigration across the endothelial cell barrier.

In this way, macrolides facilitate their own direct antibacterial activity by stimulating host defense reactions against bacteria and other microorganisms. This stimulatory activity of macrolides can also be seen after repeated administration to otherwise healthy animals. In healthy mice, a 28-day (but not a 7-day) treatment with erythromycin or roxithromycin (10 mg/kg) resulted in increased production of proinflammatory cytokines by isolated macrophages and IL-2 by isolated splenocytes [33, 34].
