Rationale Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the leading causes of deaths worldwide. Patients with COPD have episodes of aggravated symptoms called exacerbations caused by pathogens or pollution. Respiratory viruses are associated with a significant number of COPD exacerbations with the most common virus being the rhinovirus (RV). The mechanisms by which RVs trigger COPD exacerbations are still unclear. Using human whole lung tissue explants (WTE), a novel model of RV… CONTINUE READING
