The 2006 EUROCONFERENCE on Infections and Lung Diseases will provide an update on the more advanced knowledge on the mechanisms of both innate and adaptative immunity in the respiratory tract, as well as on the pathophysiology and therapeutic and preventive approaches towards major respiratory infectious and inflammatory diseases, both at the experimental and clinical levels.With more than 3 millions deaths each year, pulmonary infectious diseases represent the first cause of mortality associated to infections in the world.A series of communications by internationally renowned experts will permit to present the current concepts on the molecular mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions in the respiratory epithelia, the receptor and effector molecules of innate immune responses to respiratory pathogens, and the genetic determinants that condition these interactions. Part of communications will be focused on the analysis of the role(s) of differents cell types and mediators involved in the initation of inflammation and pathogen killing.This will be illustrated by major pathologic conditions, such as viral and bacterial pneumonia, tuberculosis, infection-associated asthma, cystic fibrosis, or obstructive bronchitis. Modern therapeutic and vaccine approaches will also be presented and discussed.This conference on infections and lung diseases will be the opportunity for researchers, clinicians and students to update their knowledge on the most recent advances in the fields of respiratory infectious diseases and immunity.
