Lung Microbiota: A new way forward for future treatments?

Human microbiota consists mostly of bacteria but also includes viruses, molds, yeasts, and protozoa which colonize skin and mucous membranes of cavities exposed to the exterior, such as the gastrointestinal, respiratory and genitourinary tracts. In these environments, microbiota establishes a symbiotic relationship with the host, providing early modulation of the host’s physiological development, [...]
