Bronchus-Associated Lymphoid Tissue & Lung Infection in Down Syndrome

Yeager, Michael E


Problems with the immune system can cause disease. Respiratory tract infection (RTI) is a large and deadly problem for persons with Down syndrome (DS). In this project, we will learn much more about why the local lung immune system is broken in DS, with an eye towards the development of new therapies to improve the defenses against RTI in persons with and without DS.
