Neonatal chlamydial infection induces mixed T-cell responses that drive allergic airway disease
Rationale: Chlamydial lung infection has been associated with asthma in children and adults. However, how chlamydial infection influences the development of immune responses that promote asthma remains unknown. Objectives: To determine the effect of chlamydial infection at various ages on the development of allergic airway disease (AAD). Methods: Mousemodels of chlamydial lung infectionand ovalbumin-induced AAD were established in neonatal and adult BALB/c mice. Neonatal or adult mice were...[Show more]
