The precise mechanism through which fluticasone propionate affects rhinitis symptoms is not known. Corticosteroids have been shown to have a wide range of effects on multiple cell types (., mast cells, eosinophils, neutrophils, macrophages, lymphocytes) and mediators (., histamine, eicosanoids, leukotrienes, cytokines) involved in inflammation. In 7 trials in adults, Flonase Nasal Spray has decreased nasal mucosal eosinophils in 66% of patients (35% for placebo) and basophils in 39% of patients (28% for placebo). The direct relationship of these findings to long-term symptom relief is not known.
Cellulose acetate (CAc, CA) and its co-esters are the most important cellulose esters. CAc is a crystal clear, tough, and flexible plastic and one of the most stable cellulose derivatives.
It has excellent chemical resistance to organic and inorganic weak acids, hydrocarbons, vegetable oils, and the like. Often plasticizers are added or
mixed ester of cellulose like butyrate-acetate and propionate-acetate are produced which have improved flexibility, toughness, and moisture resistance.
Cellulose acetate is widely used for industrial and consumer goods applications. CAc can be classified into two types: cellulose diacetate and cellulose triacetate. Important uses include textiles (fibers and threads for quality fabrics); plastic films such as optical film for LCD technology and antifog goggles; and consumer products such as cellulose based filters, window cartons, and labels.
