    Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most prevalent pathogen causing community-acquired pneumonia. CD44 is a transmembrane adhesion molecule, expressed by a wide variety of cell types, that has several functions in innate and adaptive immune responses. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that...
