Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is a devastating clinical disease that results from an aggressive pulmonary allergic response to the antigens released by colonizing Aspergillus fumigatus (A. fumigatus) in the respiratory system. Many of the allergic features of clinical ABPA have been reproduced in murine models, thereby facilitating a detailed analysis of the inflammatory and immune events that surround the initiation and maintenance of this disease. Herein, we describe the… CONTINUE READING
