Cell signaling underlying the pathophysiology of pneumonia.

Abstract

The symposium addressed the burgeoning interest in fundamental mechanisms underlying the onset of pneumonia. Bacteria exploit the lung's innate immune mechanism, resulting in pathophysiological cell signaling. As a consequence inflammation develops, leading to pneumonia. New mechanisms have been identified by which bacteria or bacterial products in the… (More)
