Mucosal surfaces, including the respiratory, gastrointestinal and urogenital tract, function as a first line of defense by separating the external environment from the internal sterile environment. This barrier faces both environments rich in pathogens which require a strong immune response, as well as harmless antigens such as food, airborne antigens or commensal bacterial flora which require ...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive lung disease that is characterized by airway remodeling, persistent inflammation, and emphysema (1). Patients with COPD suffer from airflow obstruction that is not fully reversible. Extracellular matrix remodeling of the airways and lung tissue is a hallmark of morphological changes in patients with COPD. Excessive production of the ...

The mononuclear phagocyte system has historically been categorized into monocytes, dendritic cells and macrophages on the basis of functional and phenotypical characteristics (1). However, considering that these characteristics are often overlapping, the distinction between and classification of these cell types has been challenging. With the introduction of multicolour flow cytometry, the asse...

The topic of fetal programming and epigenetics is still new and unknown by many paediatricians. On the morning of my presentation, Dr M. Hanson gave a lecture on ‘Epigenetics & Cardiovascular Development’, during which he referred to several (Dutch) birth cohorts. He explained how non-communicable disease exposes a major threat to global health and the economies in both develope...

There is increasing evidence in the literature that Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) should not be considered as a localized pulmonary disorder but as a systemic disease (1). According to the recently published ERS statement on Nutritional assessment and therapy in COPD (2) nutritional status, reflected by (abnormal) body composition, is an important and independent determinant of C...
