Bronchiectasis neutrophil reprogramming paper out

Bronchiectasis neutrophil reprogramming paper out

 

NEW PAPER

Our latest paper, from Pallavi Bedi, in collaboration with Adam Hill and Adriano Rossi, is now out in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, demonstrating that in bronchiectasis, peripheral blood neutrophils are reprogrammed and have prolonged survival, impairing their bacterial phagocytosis and killing  capacity, thereby perpetuating the vicious circle in bronchiectasis.

Blood Neutrophils are Reprogrammed in Bronchiectasis.
