This text presents recent advances in important areas of mucosal immunology, with special emphasis on the interactions of lymphoid and epithelial cells. The first of two sections reviews basic knowledge of the intestinal immune system, giving detailed information on the close interplay of enterocytes and lymphocytes in the transport of immunoglobulins, absorption, processing and presentation of antigens, and regulation of epithelium renewal by growth factors. The second section applies these new insights to knowledge of pathogenesis and treatment of a number of disease states which are sustained by an aberrant immune response at mucosal sites.
