Bacterial vaccines in prevention of infectious exacerbation of asthma – historic outline
Józef Hałasa, Maciej Hałasa

For several decades, starting back in the thirties of the twentieth century,
bacterial vaccines have been used for treatment of one particular form
of asthma. This type of treatment was motivated by the exacerbation
of asthma symptoms accompanied by the production of muco-purulent
exudate in the respiratory tract and fever. Such form of the disease was
named “the infectious asthma”. Some authors reported on the positive
results of bacterial vaccination treatment, others did not record any of its
benefits. By the end of the last century experts in the field concluded that
there was no influence of typical bacteria on pathogenesis and the course
of asthma. However, this opinion did not seem to be fully substantiated.
As a result, the use of bacterial vaccines in asthma was abandoned.
Latest literature indicates that the return in the role of bacteria in asthma
has revived.
