Respiratory syncytial virus infection enhances neutrophil and eosinophil adhesion to cultured respiratory epithelial cells. Roles of CD18 and intercellular adhesion molecule-1.


Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infections in children precipitate acute episodes of respiratory obstruction that are associated with influx of inflammatory cells into the airway. Since RSV can induce the expression of adhesion molecules, particularly intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), by the respiratory epithelium, the hypothesis has been… (More)
