Discovery Reveals Bacterial Communication's Role in Enhancing Infections, Signaling Hope for Advanced Treatments

This study discovered a mechanism by which bacteria communicate with each other to control gene expression in viruses leading to an acute infection. This finding is important because it can lead to future developments in treating infections, especially in people who may be immunocompromised, or have lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis and COPD. Senior author Jon E. Paczkowski, PhD is a recipient of the Lung Association Innovation Award.
