The Role of Toll-Like Receptors and Myeloid Differentiation Factor 88 in Bjerkandera adusta-Induced Lung Inflammation.

BACKGROUND Recently, a cluster of patients with an intractable allergic fungal cough who were characterized by sensitization to Bjerkandera adusta was reported. In the present study, the role of Toll-like receptors and myeloid differentiation factor 88 (MyD88) in B. adusta-induced lung inflammation was investigated. METHODS Wild-type (WT), TLR2-/-,TLR4… CONTINUE READING
