Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is an immunologic hypersensitivity pneumonitis caused by an inflammatory response towards antigens of the mould Aspergillus fumigatus. Based on the applicants' complementary expertise, this project monitors eosinophil recruitment and identifies sources of crucial cytokines. The project further aims at characterization of cellular host-pathogen interactions and identification of fungal factors contributing to the development of ABPA.
