Pathogenesis and host defense in pulmonary infections.

PMID:  9363048     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The development of pneumonia typically results from an overwhelming bacterial inoculum or a breakdown in the integrity of the host's pulmonary defense mechanisms. Augmentation of pulmonary defenses is one means of reducing the incidence, morbidity, and mortality from pneumonia. Strategies to enhance pulmonary or systemic defenses are actively being investigated. Selected established and investigational measures enhancing host defense mechanisms against various pathogens are reviewed.
