Abstract
BACKGROUND: The respiratory system is the main target that is affected by cigarette smoking and influenza A virus infection. There are many publications on cigarette smoking as a risk factor during seasonal influenza A virus infection in mice and humans but, the effect of cigarette smoking on the pathogenicity of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N1 virus has not been studied. As cigarette smoking alters the gene expression and induces structural changes in the respiratory tract and eventually the host immunity, the effect of cigarette smoking in relation to H5N1 infection is therefore a relevant topic for further ...
