Airway Microbiota and Allergic Diseases: Clinical Implications

  title={Airway Microbiota and Allergic Diseases: Clinical Implications},
  author={E. Fouda},
Bronchial Asthma is an airway disease with variable degrees of bronchial mucosal inflammation and intermittent episodes of airway obstruction and bronchial hyperesponsivness. That asthma is a syndrome consisting of different phenotypes has been recognized for a long time by clinicians [1]. New evidence indicates that the composition of airway microbiota differs in states of health and disease. Different chronic airway diseases had been related to changes in microbiota due to various factors… Expand
