BACKGROUND Respiratory viral infection, including respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and rhinovirus, has been linked to respiratory disease in pediatric patients, including severe acute bronchiolitis and asthma exacerbation. OBJECTIVE The study examined the role of the epithelial-derived cytokine thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP) in the response to RSV infection. METHODS Infection of human airway epithelial cells was used to examine TSLP induction after RSV infection. Air-liquid interface… CONTINUE READING
