The More Laboratory
The influenza virus infection is difficult to prevent in terms of the changing nature of the virus genome. The influenza virus is dependent on host factors for successful infection and replication. Our laboratory is studying the role of these host factors in the pathogenesis of influenza virus infection. In addition, influenza virus infection in a patient with COPD is very critical. Their lungs are already compromised with emphysema and bronchiolitis. Unfortunately, an animal model (cigarette smoke and elastase-induced) that closely mimics the pathology of the COPD lungs is lacking. Our laboratory is focusing on the development of this model using a different approach.
