Hot topic
Chairs: C. Britto (New Haven, United States of America), D. Bogaert (Edinburgh, United Kingdom)
Aims: to describe the immune contributions of airway host defence peptides and proteins (HDPs) to pulmonary health and disease; to demonstrate the importance of HDPs for regulating host-pathogen interactions and the progression of lung disease; to highlight clinical applications of the immune properties of HDPs in respiratory medicine.
