Abstract

Pseudomonas aeruginosa was found to adhere selectively to cilia of human ciliated tracheal epithelial cells (TECs). P. aeruginosa bound in equal numbers to TECs of smokers and nonsmokers, with the mean adhesion index for binding of P. aeruginosa 492c to TECs of healthy individuals (± standard deviation) being 6.83 ± 6.00 bacteria per TEC.
