In the current funding period, we showed that acquired defects in mucosal immunity in small airways are a central feature of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We now propose to investigate mechanisms by which impairment of this first line of host defense leads to persistent activation of subsequent lines of host defense (innate and adaptive immunity), thus driving COPD progression. Although it has been clear for several years that COPD pathology begins in the small resistance airways...
