Proinflammatory cytokine responses to P. aeruginosa infection in human airway epithelial cell lines.


A tendency toward excessive inflammation in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients often accompanies lung infections with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. We tested the cytokine response to P. aeruginosa in two pairs of human airway epithelial cell lines matched except for CF transmembrane conductance regulator activity. The 9/HTEo(-) CF-phenotypic cell line produced… (More)
