Tang BM, Feng CG, McLean AS. Understanding the role of host response in influenza pneumonitis. Intensive Care Med. 2019 Apr 24.
Host factors, in additional to viral factors, are important in determining patient outcomes in influenza pneumonitis [2, 3]. A better understanding of the host factors associated with severe disease is therefore needed; it may help discover pathogenic pathways that determine disease progression and enable researchers identify new therapeutic targets. Here, we examine the immune cells underpinning the host response to influenza infection.
