Abstract

The human nasopharynx is frequently colonized by Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus), serving as the reservoir for transmission, a state which necessarily precedes invasive pneumococcal infection. Influenza infection increases pneumococcal colonization density and dysregulates host immune responses, increasing the risk of secondary bacterial pneumonia and death.
