BMC Immunology is calling for submissions to our Collection on Innate immunity and inflammation.
Innate immunity and inflammation are fundamental aspects of the body's defense system, acting as the first line of protection against invading pathogens and tissue damage. Innate immunity, via various specialized cells, molecules, and pathways allows the body to recognize and respond to foreign substances, and activate the inflammatory response. Inflammation recruits immune cells, releases inflammatory mediators, and activates pathways to restore homeostasis. This interplay between innate immunity and inflammation helps contain infections, eliminate pathogens, and initiate tissue repair processes. Exploring the intricate relationship between innate immunity and inflammation will help researchers decipher the etiology of various diseases and also provides opportunities for targeted therapeutic interventions.
