    Abstract

    This issue of the Journal of Pathology contains a series of cutting-edge review articles that deal with the broad issue of inflammatory and immunological disease mechanisms. Of necessity, these reviews deal with selected topics but the mixture of articles on specific signalling pathways and mediators with articles addressing individual organ systems provides a broad overview of the field. These contributions provide insight into current areas of debate in inflammation and immunology. In particular, they highlight current interest in the interface between innate and adaptive immunity and present intriguing prospects for future therapeutic developments in a variety of disease areas.
