IVIG-mediated protection against necrotizing pneumonia  · Current use of IVIG for the treatment of community-associated MRSA pneumonia is supported only by in vitro data showing that it contains antitoxin antibodies and by anecdotal case reports (6–9).Randomized clinical trials to test the efficacy of IVIG as adjunctive therapy may be impractical because community-associated MRSA necrotizing pneumonia occurs sporadically

IL-17 can be protective or deleterious in murine  · Nasal colonization is an essential step prior to infection. The cytokine IL-17 protects against such colonization and vaccines that enhance IL-17 responses to pneumococcal colonization are being developed. The role of IL-17 in host defence against pneumonia is not known. To address this issue, we have utilized a murine model of pneumococcal

Lipocalin 2 is protective against E. coli pneumonia · Background Lipocalin 2 is a bacteriostatic protein that binds the siderophore enterobactin, an iron-chelating molecule produced by Escherichia coli (E. coli) that is required for bacterial growth. Infection of the lungs by E. coli is rare despite a frequent exposure to this commensal bacterium. Lipocalin 2 is an effector molecule of the innate immune system and

Specific egg yolk antibody raised to biofilm associated · In conclusion, the IgY against biofilm-associated protein proves prophylactic in a murine pneumonia model. Acinetobacter baumannii easily turns into pan drug-resistant (PDR)
