Abstract Share this page

Bronchus-associated lymphoid tissue (BALT) has been shown to be an important component in the immune system of the lung of several species, notably the rabbit and the rat. Does BALT fulfil the same function in the human lung? Reinhard Pabst thinks not and proposes an integrated model of the lung immune system, in which BALT plays but a minor role.
