How a new-born’s first breath influences the development of lung immunity

A study co-authored by AcademiaNet scientist Sylvia Knapp has revealed the extent to which the very first breath of life determines the development of the immune system in the lungs. The results of Knapp and her colleagues not only provide novel insights into the immunological environment of the lungs immediately after birth - they also illustrate the delicate balancing act that lungs must negotiate between excessive inflammation and susceptibility to infection. The authors’ study is published in the journal Cell Reports.
