Respiratory infections in the elderly -  the  role in exacerbations of chronic airway diseases

Venue: Didactic Centre of the Medical University of Łódź, ul. Pomorska 251, room: 1.20

Workshop Chairmen: Professor Marek L. Kowalski

Respiratory infections are among the major causes of morbidity and mortality in the elderly The aim of the conference is to review the status of current research on the role
of infections in the pathogenesis and exacerbations of asthma and COPD with emphasis on the elderly population. The microbiome and immune system interactions in the elderly will be addressed as well.
