Streptococcus pneumoniae naturally resides in the nasopharynx of colonised individuals. Although nasopharyngeal colonisation is asymptomatic it is the first step toward pneumococcal disease. Elucidating the mechanisms by which S. pneumoniae stimulates the mucosal innate immune response may help us understand the progression from asymptomatic colonisation to inflammatory disease.
