It can be seen that the formation of NETs is done by a certain function and process and the activation of neutrophils is done by a mechanism, and that mechanism is due to a dead cell called NETossis, and the NETs releases chromatin fibers that are toxic, and harmful. Influenza is extensively studied by the mouse model, and the researchers in the current study use drugs and pathophysiology.

Complications of acute respiratory distress syndrome are developed by a group of patients. These patients have been hospitalized and have a significant percentage of influenza. They report on these details and investigate what happens inside them. Researchers have successfully found a suitable cure for this and a treatment that targets the immune receptor. Blockers in combination with an antiviral agent and this agent improve the chances of survival in mice severely infected with lethal influenza and successfully reduce pulmonary pathology in piglets infected with swine flu. This research was carried out with great experience and professors from highly qualified industries. This research also provides information about the optimal timing of treatment to prevent acute lung injury. The research was published in the actively published Journal of Pathology Elsevier and researchers have found that treatment with immune receptor blockers in combination with an antiviral agent. In recent years, researchers have found that an excessive influx of infection-fighting neutrophils from immune cells and the path they take to kill pathogens are known as extracellular neutrophil traps, which are responsible for the exact risk of lung injury from influenza infection.

Since mice are not considered as natural hosts for influenza, further validation in larger animals is necessary before testing in humans. Therefore, researchers also tested piglets infected with the swine influenza virus. The animals were treated with a combination of a CXCR2 antagonist, SCH527123, together with an antiviral agent, oseltamivir. The combination of SCH527123 and oseltamivir significantly improved survival in mice compared to either of the drugs administered alone. The combination therapy also reduced pulmonary pathology in piglets. Combination therapy reduces lung inflammation, alveolitis, and vascular pathology, indicating that aberrant neutrophil activation and release in NETs exacerbate pulmonary pathology in severe influenza.

It can be challenging to balance the suppression of excessive neutrophil influx without compromising the beneficial host immunity conferred by neutrophils. Therefore, the researchers examined the temporal dynamics of NETs released in correlation with pathological changes during the course of infection in mice. During the early inflammatory phase, three to five days post-infection, significant neutrophil activation and NETs release with relatively few hemorrhagic lesions were observed.
