Reviews a broad scope of topics in the field of gastrointestinal immunity.

The many topics covered include: characterization of Ia or DR-related gene products on lymphocyte membranes; the antigen-presenting dendritic cell; the discovery of the M cell and the role of Peyer's patches in antigen processing; the trapping and subsequent priming of lymphocytes and their pattens of migration to other mucosal sites; and the role of T lymphocyte-directed mucosal mast cells.
