    Abstract

    When a mucosal surface is injured, inflammatory responses ensue. These responses are characterized by the well-orchestrated accumulation of reparative leukocytes that protect and heal the mucosa during a process that often goes unrecognized. Under other circumstances, genetically predisposed hosts encounter exogenous or endogenous triggers that lead to pathological inflammation, tissue damage, and organ dysfunction. The gastrointestinal tract is the target site for this process in a number of diseases, including inflammatory bowel diseases, celiac disease, and eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE)...
