Gram-negative enteric bacilli, such as Escherichia coli, are common causes of nosocomial pneumonia. The interaction between pulmonary neutrophils and the infecting pathogen is a critical step in determining the outcome. Previous studies from our laboratory, for which a rat model of pneumonia was used, established that pulmonary neutrophil recruitment was… CONTINUE READING
