Abstract: Azithromycin decreases airway neutrophilia and can prevent chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD) after lung transplantation (LTx). It also can be used to treat lymphocytic bronchiolitis, as it decreases the submucosal infiltrating IL-17 positive lymphocytes. Some patients, while receiving azithromycin, (re)develop increased airway neutrophilia, which we hypothesize to result in worse outcome and to be regulated by an IL-17-independent mechanism.
