The immunology of mucosal surfaces is likely one of the most enjoyable and correct parts of clinical veterinary and dental study because it applies easy learn to tissues in­ volved in daily defence opposed to microbes and opposed to environmental and nutrients antigens. This booklet is predicated at the contributions awarded on the foreign Con­ gress of Mucosal Immunology, held in London in July 1989 and organised via the Mu­ cosal Immunology Affinity staff of the British Society for Immunology. The meet­ ing used to be attended by means of over 500 delegates from 27 international locations, together with almost all the top investigators within the box. The contents supply accomplished and up-to­ date details on such subject matters as antigen presentation and processing within the intestine, mucosal vaccines in guy and animals, HIV an infection within the intestine, the position of yo T cells within the intestine epithelium, fresh advances in inflammatory bowel ailment and coeliac dis­ ease, the position of cytokines within the rules of the IgA reaction, mucosal mast cells and mobile migration. The contributions replicate the speedy speed of analysis in mucosal immunology, and the good strides that are happening within the realizing of the immunology, molecular biology and biochemistry of host reaction at mucosal sur­ faces.

Example text

Normal human intestinal mucosa has been reported to contain relatively fewer CD45RA + T cells than peripheral blood - that is, 38% vs. 68% [17], and our findings have indicated a still lower mucosal proportion of this putative naive subset [18]. Also studies of interleukin 2 (IL-2) receptor (Tac antigen or CD25) on intestinal T cells from normal monkeys have suggested a remarkable level of stimulation [17]. This observation harmonizes with the fact that many T cells in normal (and especially in diseased) human intestinal mucosa express CD45RO, both in the lamina propria and in the epithelium [18].
