Immune Cell Implicated in Post-Viral Lung Disease

A new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis implicates a type of immune cell -- called a dendritic cell -- in the development of chronic lung diseases that can follow after a respiratory viral infection. Shown is a stained section of mouse lung. Epithelial cells, which line the airway, are red. Dendritic cells are green. Any cell nuclei are blue. Credit: Holtzman Lab.
