Translated title of the contribution: Milestones in understanding of the pathogenesis of immunmediated intestinal disorders. Development of their diagnosis and therapy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In the last decades our knowledge has been enormously broadened about the structure and function of the gut associated lymphoid system. It was recognized how intricate and finely tuned connection exists between the gut bacterial flora and the intestinal mucosa. This subtle balance ensures mucosal homeostasis, which has a key role in organ defence against pathogens. However, at the same time this system makes possible the development of oral tolerance toward the commensals and the food antigens. In case of any disturbances in this finely tuned process, immunmediated intestinal disorders may easily develop. The first part of this paper reviews the structure and function of the mucosal immune system, while the second part surveys the pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy of coeliac disease, inflammatory bowel disease and cow's milk allergy induced enteropathy.
