In this review, supplement of Clinical Perspectives in Respiratory Medicine, Pr Guido Ferlazzo (Professor of General Pathology and Immunology – University of Messina, Italy) shared his latest discoveries on bacterial lysates, more specifically PMBL® (Polyvalent Mechanical Bacterial Lysates), and its action on the reinforcement of the airway epithelial barrier. He also precised that the mode of administration of bacterial lysates was an important factor in the enhancement of protective role of epithelium: « In fact, only one locoregional administration, such as sublingual or intranasal, will involve a valid activation of the mechanisms protective here proposed »

In parallel, Pr Giovanni Di Perri (Professor of Infectious diseases, University of Turin, Italy), warned about the antimicrobial resistance emergency, and how there is a sharing of responsibilities at the different level of care. Some new therapeutic approaches shall be evaluated, such as prophylactic measures that could improve the overall profile of infections management.

He also concluded: “This not only with a view to less resorting to antibiotic therapy, but also in consideration of how PMBL® can now affect the prevention of even a single infectious episode affecting the airways in the economy of a precarious balance in which many of the patients find themselves in old age and / or with multiple chronic comorbidities.”
