Gastrointestinal Immunology

Gastrointestinal Immunology mainly focus on differentiation of gut-associated lymphoid tissue, regulation of innate and adaptive immune cell differentiation and function, genetic and epigenetic factors regulating immune responses and inflammation. It also gives idea about the clinical research, clinical trials and epidemiology studies on gastrointestinal inflammatory diseases including gluten-sensitive enteropathy, inflammatory bowel disease, and gastritis, malabsorption syndromes, diarrhea, gastric and duodenal ulcers and disease of the salivary glands excluding cystic fibrosis. The immune reaction of the gastrointestinal tract to the external stimulus or the failure to respond is the most important aspect of the gastrointestinal tract system. The gastrointestinal (GI) tract contains the largest mass of immune cells in the body. Scientific progress in the area of gut immune system and the immune abnormalities includes the latest developments in organ transplantation of the liver and gut. HIV infection in the gut and H. pylori gastritis are the recently discovered disease
