Project description

Influenza A viruses (FLUAV) remain a considerable health threat to humans. Virus-induced cytokines and chemokines have a strong effect against FLUAV in the mammalian airways. Aim of the FLUINNATE project is the better understanding of the viral-host interactions which may contribute to the development of more efficient control measures.
