3. Mucosal immunity in the respiratory tract : The role of IgA in protection against intracellular pathogens

Therefore, induction of immune responses in the respiratory tract is crucial for protection against respiratory diseases. One of the pathogens infecting the host via the respiratory tract is Mycobacterium Tuberculosis. LÄS MER
