The mucosal surfaces of the human body are typically colonized by polymicrobial communities seeded in infancy and are continuously shaped by environmental exposures. These communities interact with the mucosal immune system to maintain homeostasis in health, but perturbations in their composition and function are associated with lower airway diseases, including asthma, a developmental and heterogeneous chronic disease with various degrees and types of airway inflammation. This review will… 
The Role of Lower Airway Dysbiosis in Asthma: Dysbiosis and Asthma
TLDR
The published reports about the lung microbiome of healthy controls are reviewed, an outlook on the contribution of lower airway dysbiosis to asthma, especially steroid-resistant asthma are provided, and the potential therapies targeted for lowerAirway Dysbiosis are discussed.
Human Respiratory and Gut Microbiomes—Do They Really Contribute to Respiratory Health?
TLDR
This review details recent evidence that implicates the contribution of gut and airway microbiome to pediatric respiratory health.
Bacterial biogeography of adult airways in atopic asthma
TLDR
Induced sputum is superior to nasal brush or oral wash for assessing bronchial microbiota composition in asthmatic adults, and the microbiota in induced spUTum are distinct, reflecting enrichment of oral bacteria.
Dynamics of the upper airway microbiome in the pathogenesis of asthma-associated persistent wheeze in preschool children
TLDR
Underlying pathogenic interactions between allergic sensitization and antibacterial mechanisms are suggested, particularly around the appearance of viral pathogens and acute symptoms in non-sensitized children.
The nasopharyngeal microbiome.
TLDR
The development of the nasopharyngeal (NP) microbiome is reviewed from the early establishment of resilient profiles in neonates through to perturbations associated with pneumonia risk in the elderly, focusing specifically on the commensal, opportunistically pathogenic members of the NP microbiome.
The intersect of genetics, environment, and microbiota in asthma-perspectives and challenges.
TLDR
A unified framework is proposed for understanding how all these phenomena interact to drive asthma pathogenesis, in particular the need for multiomic integration, as well as the potential utility of asthma endotyping.
Lung Microbiome Is Influenced by the Environment and Asthmatic Status in an Equine Model of Asthma
TLDR
This difference, seen mainly when airway inflammation was present in horses with asthma but not in control animals, suggests that the altered lung microbiome in asthma might not be inherent but coincident with inflammation.
Airway Microbiota Dynamics Uncover a Critical Window for Interplay of Pathogenic Bacteria and Allergy in Childhood Respiratory Disease
TLDR
It is demonstrated that repeated cycles of infection-associated lower airway inflammation drive the pathogenesis of persistent wheezing disease in children, and monitoring NPM composition may enable early detection and intervention in high-risk children.
Microbiota in T-cell homeostasis and inflammatory diseases
TLDR
This review will focus on understanding the complicated microbiota-T-cell axis between homeostatic and pathogenic conditions and elucidate important insights for the development of novel targets for disease therapy.
Bacteriophage deficiency characterizes respiratory virome dysbiosis in childhood asthma
TLDR
The virome in the upper respiratory system of healthy and asthmatic preschool children during asymptomatic/non-infection periods using metagenomics finds differential virus species co-occurrence patterns suggest a decrease of the microbiota community resilience in asthma.

TLDR
Evidence to date suggests that the airway and/or gut microbiome may represent fertile targets for prevention or management of allergic asthma and other diseases in which adaptive immune dysfunction is a prominent feature.

TLDR
This review summarizes the current knowledge concerning the lung microbiota in COPD and its potential implications for pathogenesis of the disease.
Airway microbiota and bronchial hyperresponsiveness in patients with suboptimally controlled asthma.
TLDR
The composition of Bronchial airway microbiota is associated with the degree of bronchial hyperresponsiveness among patients with suboptimally controlled asthma, and these findings support the need for further functional studies to examine the potential contribution of members of theAirway microbiota in asthma pathogenesis.
Dysregulation of allergic airway inflammation in the absence of microbial colonization.
TLDR
These data demonstrate that the presence of commensal bacteria is critical for ensuring normal cellular maturation, recruitment, and control of allergic airway inflammation.
Disordered Microbial Communities in Asthmatic Airways
TLDR
The results show the bronchial tree to contain a characteristic microbiota, and suggest that this microbiota is disturbed in asthmatic airways.

TLDR
This essay reviews recent insights into the feedback mechanisms by which the lung microbiome and the host response are regulated in health and dysregulated in acute and chronic lung disease and proposes three explanatory models supported by recent studies.
Early infancy microbial and metabolic alterations affect risk of childhood asthma
TLDR
It is reported in a longitudinal human study that infants at risk of asthma have transient gut microbial dysbiosis during the first 100 days of life, and certain bacterial genera were decreased in these children, suggesting a potential causative role of the loss of these microbes.
