Contribution of monocytes to immunopathology during influenza A virus infection

Abstract:

This thesis investigates the role of monocytes in mouse and human influenza A virus (IAV) infection and questions how they contribute to immunopathology. I first show in mice that Ly6Chi monocytes are dominant immune cells in the lungs during severe IAV infection. Comparison of the gene expression profiles in lungs of severe or mild IAV infection revealed enrichment of genes related to monocyte recruitment in severe disease, which were more rapidly expressed than in mild infecti...
