The respiratory tract is in direct contact with the environment and is a complex system. Most respiratory pathogens that cause infections are quickly recognized and controlled by the innate and adaptive immunity of the immune system. However, these infections that are principally caused by bacteria, fungi, or viruses represent a persistent public health problem. During the COVID-19 pandemic, a better understanding of multiple innate and adaptive immune mechanisms applied to respiratory infections is important and necessary.
In this Special Issue, we focus on recent advances that describe the role of immunity to respiratory infections. Both original research articles and reviews on any aspect-related respiratory infections are welcome. We look forward to receiving your contribution to Pathogens.
