Understanding nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Current opinion in pulmonary medicine, 20(2):159–164.

Bacteria are frequently implicated in acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), but their influence on airway inflammation remains unclear. This review will focus on nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi), its impact on host immune responses, and the potential for vaccination strategies in COPD.
